USB to PS/2 Keyboard and Mouse Converter Adapter
Add an external PS/2 keyboard and mouse port from an internal USB header
Product ID: USBPS2PLATE
This USB to PS/2 Adapter connects to an internal (motherboard) USB port, letting you connect two PS/2 devices such as a keyboard and mouse, to your low profile or standard profile desktop PC.
The adapter provides a practical, cost-effective way to bridge your legacy PS/2 devices with a modern computer, by allowing you to use PS/2 devices on a computer that lacks built-on PS/2 ports.
Plus, unlike most native PS/2 connections, the USB to PS/2 adapter interfaces with the host computer through the USB bus - so PS/2 devices can be hot plugged or swapped without having to reboot the system.
The StarTech.com Advantage
- Bridges the gap between legacy-free computers and older PS/2 mice and keyboards
- Connect PS/2 devices to USB enabled laptop or desktop systems
- Includes Standard and Low Profile Brackets for use on any desktop PC with expansion slots.
Allows users to use PS/2 compatible mice and keyboards on computers equipped with a USB port
