i need to find a chipset that converts from parallel slave port protocol to USB. does this exist?
you may say 1284 is a dying market. but unfortunately, some ppl are still using it.
so the idea is, my PC still has the DB25 parallel port output. and this can be connected to my peripheral which offers parallel slave port on centronics connector. inside this peripheral, there is parallel-to-USB chipset that translates the IEEE 1284 data to USB.
I tried google, but mostly I find just some cables or IEEE 1284 on fpga thing... I prefer a real IC than FPGA.
if parallel-to-USB doesnt exist, then maybe parallel-to-local_bus_interface??
