Universal Serial Bus (USB) port technology has emerged in response to the proliferation of external peripheral devices (scanners, digital cameras, removable drives, etc.), that are increasingly being connected to the latest generation of PCs. USB behaves in a similar fashion to conventional bus ports (i.e., serial, parallel, PS/2), but since it does not require any IRQs, more devices can be attached to the system, and the problem of IRQ conflict is eliminated.
The UC-232A USB Serial Adapter provides an external plug-and-play RS-232 serial connection with your computer, letting you free up your existing serial port. Users have the capability to utilize the adapter with serial port interface in an easy-to-use environment, The adapter is designed for connections to Cellular phone, PDA, digital cameras, modems, or ISDN terminal adapters through your USB port with over 500 kbps data transfer rate. Installation is easy. Simply plug a serial device into the UC-232A adapter and plug the USB port into the computer. No IRQs are needed so there are no IRQ or Com port conflicts.
