Project completed today: a USB to IEEE-1284 Bridge under Windows Virtual PC running Windows 98 within a Macintosh iBook. A USB device driver was installed (also under Windows 98) and configured for a cable, compatible with a parallel port device. The USB port is a Macintosh shared resource. Although originally designed for driving a printer (for computers lacking parallel ports), this device will serve as a parallel EEPROM interface for burning code into PIC processors.
