A parallel port is a type of interface found on computers (personal and otherwise) for connecting peripherals. In computing, a parallel port is a parallel communication physical interface.
- Centronics printer One of the most used printer interfaces in the past. Now replaced by IEEE1284-B / USB.
- ECP Parallel LPT port (IEEE-1284A) This file is designed to give a basic overview of the port found in most newer PC computers called ECP Parallel port. ECP = Extended Capabilities port. ECP is an extension of the EPP design.
- IEEE1284-B (centronics) printer IEEE1284-B connector (also called Centronics) is widely used in parallel interface printers (except some HP's).
- IEEE1284-C (HP printer) This interface connector may be found at most newer HP printers equipped with LPT port and some other hardware. Connector is half-pitch Centronics (HPCN36) MDR 36.
- PC parallel LPT port One of the most used printer interfaces, since every Intel/DOS/Windows based Personal Computer today has a Sub-D25 female connector which is called LPT1
- Parallel (SUN) Available on SUN SPARCengine motherboards
- 11 Parallel interfaces OLD hardware pinouts.
