Parallel to USB printer interface: “LPTzUSB”

Recommended Posts

I found a site with specifications of a device that allows printing to a USB printer from a parallel printer port. It doesn't offer them for sale, the site has schematic, Eagle files, and ATmega16 firmware. The designer allows cloning of the device, but requests feedback for assigning serial numbers.

It doesn't translate the protocol so the printer in question must be able to handle that used by the source, I believe the Epson FX protocol would be the best option for the Atari8 line. IBM has a webpage with a database that can be checked to see which printers support this.

 

A similar commercial device is available for US$69.00 from http://www.lpt2usb.net/
