Question #: 3458

Question: why does the parallel port breakout board have usb port?

Current Solution

The parallel breakout board contains a USB port to power the board. Through the USB port, the computer delivers 5v of stable power to the parallel breakout board, but doe not provide any communication as would normally be associated with USB connectivity.

The reason we elected to use the USB port to provide power is to remove the need for an external 5v wall adapter.
