What would you like to do?

As we know parallel transmission is faster then serial then why serial is replacing parallel?

already exists.

Would you like to merge this question into it?

already exists as an alternate of this question.

Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

exists and is an alternate of .

There is a greater risk of errors with parallel transmission because especially over longer distances, the bits may arrive at the destination at different times and therefore corrupting the data. Because serial transmission sends each bit one at a time, they always are received in order.
Speed of transmission is not always the driving priority, if the information cannot be reliably transferred to the destination all the speed in the universe is useless.
Thanks for the feedback!

What is difference between Serial port and parallel port difference?

In serial port : The Data flows continuously and In Parallel Port : The Data is transported as a pack. Hence for large data to be printed it is always preferable to use the se

What are the differences between serial and parallel communication?

The difference is that serial transmissions only use 2 wires for transmitting and receiving data, and only 1 for sending or receiving, and can only send one bit at a time. 

How many pins does parallel and serial port have?

The traditional parallel port is a 25 "d-sub" connector. Serial ports come in two flavors, either 25 pin "d-sub" or 9 pin. USB (another serial communication standard) is a

What is the difference between parallel addition and serial addition?

Well, in serial addition the data containing your "carry over" value must propagate through each addition sequence. This process makes the process much slower relative to para

What is the difference between Serial transmission and parallel transmission?

Digital data transmission can occur in two basic modes: serial or parallel. Data within a computer system is transmitted via parallel mode on buses with the width of the paral

Compare parallel port and serial port?

A serial port is a 9 pin, RS-232 connection usually used for Terminal connections and older modems as well as some mice and older keyboards for example. It has lost much of

What are the advantages and disadvantages of parallel and serial communication?

Serial Data Transmission Parallel Data transmission / Advantages | Disadvantages | Advantages | Disadvantages / Used over long distances | Slower to send data | Faste

What is the difference between a serial port and a parallel port?

Answer--   Parallel ports are easy to program and faster compared to the serial ports. But main disadvantage is it needs more number of transmission lines. Because of thi

Describe the differences between serial and parallel interfaces?

 serial transmits one bit at a time in sequence, may be  synchronous or asynchronous, usually does not use any handshake  signals between sender and receiver  parallel tr
