USB to Serial Port Converter



A USB to Serial Port Converter/Adapter is a device used to connect a serial modem, barcode scanner, PDA or any other device with a serial sync to an available USB port on a host computer. This is a cost-effective measure, that saves the cost of having to upgrade serial peripheral devices for USB compliance.
