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.

Why is a SATA hard drive faster than a PATA hard drive since SATA supports serial transmissions which slower than parallel transmissions?

This is answered in Answers.com's Computer Encyclopedia ;. Following is my explanation based on this. Basically, with parallel data paths, transmission speed along those con

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

What is Serial and parallel transmission?

Most signals are transmitted on a bus which is, as you might imagine, a "highway" for information. A serial bus is a single "lane" that has a control structure at each end to

IS mouse serial or parallel?

New mice are neither serial or parallel, they are PS/2... So, if you look at the back of the computer it has a different socket than serial or parallel. Only older mice was
