DPM-USB Dual-Port Memory to USB Converter

DPM-USB ORTEC Dual Port Memory to USB Converter
  • Simple Install – Connect the cable and update the drivers!
  • No external cable required – powered from the USB.
  • USB 2.0 Compatible.
Since the inception of the personal computer, ORTEC has provided MCBs which couple to the PC via a flat ribbon cable to an ISA card in the computer. The ISA (Industry Standard Architecture) Bus is now almost completely extinct. Today’s modern PCs often do not have option slots of any type, but all have USB ports. An enhancement to the CONNECTIONS product family, the DPM-USB interface provides a means to convert the ORTEC Dual-Port Memory (DPM) communication to USB.
