What is a parallel connector?
A parallel connector, or parallel port, is an interface used to connect a computer to some external peripheral. An example of things that can hook up to a computer using a parallel port include a printer and/or a scanner. More recently, the USB interface has become extremely common and most types of devices that used to commonly hook up via parallel port now hook up by USB instead.

Answer . Sometimes people call lines of latitude parallels. Latitude lines are the lines that are located north and south of the equator.
Ports are any cable or device connection point designed to plug in peripherals etc. into the computer. They are commonly known as i/o ports (input/ output). Connectors are the same thing.
An RCA connector is a connector developed by the company RCA. Hints the name. Anyway it is a simple connector that has an outer sleeve and a prong in the middle. You see these type of connectors everywhere. They are on the back of most TVs, DVD players, VCRs and Cassette Decks. To make a connection …with AV equipment, you just push the RCA connector (male) into the wall mount or plate RCA jack (female).

Physics and Geometry It is when two rays or a line segment can go on and onwithout touching. Parallelism refers to sentence structures that include similar wordor phrase patterns. Sentence and list structure Parallelism is about consistency, and having all the parts in thesame form. In a senten…ce, compound verbs or other words should be in the sameform. Example : "He sang and was dancing all night" is improper if youactually mean "He was singing and dancing all night". Similarly,"He had finished and went upstairs" mixes two different tenses, andis improved as "He finished and went upstairs" or "He had finishedand gone upstairs". A things-to-do list might read : Reading to the kids at the library Singing with the choir Make sure to buy MILK!!! Volunteering at the hospital Parallelism would require changing the third item to "Buying Milk(remember!). You retain the meaning, and have made your listparallel in structure. (MORE)

\nSerial connector term is used for an interface connector on which the protocol of data transfer is serial type. Serial data transfer means one electrical connection or signal for data transfer (one bit at a time from transmitter to receiver) at specific speed (bits per second). Note that on the co…nnector actually there may be more than one electrical connections for signals other than serial data, which include clock and power in some cases, or control signals. Serial data itself may be electrically sent in differential form in which case serial data itself needs two wires (positive and negative). Common examples of serial connectors include serial port (RS232) and USB. (MORE)

Battery connectors are what connect batteries to devices so thedevice can get power from the battery. Electricity is the flow ofelectrons, and a battery has to have a way for the electrons toleave (negative wire) and return (positive wire). Thus theterminals on the battery are what do this, and batt…ery connectorsin a device or vehicle are what carries the electricity to thedevice or vehicle so it can be used. For instance, they electrically connect the battery to a laptop topower the computer. (MORE)
The official term is IEEE 1394, it is called Firewire and is competing against USB for ports on the computer. Firewire transmits 400Mbps while USB transmits 480Mbps. Most people use Firewire for downloading photos on their cameras while they use USB to downland data.
Parallel sockets are wide, with two rows of pins that total 25 in all. Printers and some other devices use 36 pins, but they look the same. There is a screw hole at either end to allow the connector to be fastened securely.
An IDE connector is used to connect a CD-ROM drive or hard drive to a motherboard, with a long and flat ribbon cable.
The IDE connector provides a way to connect a drive to themotherboard. Two IDE devices can be connected via a single cable tothe motherboard with two connectors being attached to the devices,and one to the motherboard.
E-IDE connectors are enhanced versions of the industry standard IDEconnectors found on most computers. E-IDE provides a higher datatransfer rate and better plug and play capability.
Parallel refers to the longitude where you live. Longitudes are the imaginary lines ruled around the globe by map makers starting at the equator, zero longitude, to 90 degrees at the poles.

P8 connector is an old AT standard power connector for motherboardsused along with P9 connector. Those two connectors would form amain connector or also known as P1 connector. Today those namingconventions have been slightly misclassified, where P8 is known asthe 4x12V secondary connector with 8 pin…s by the mass. It isimportant to know that those are totally different connectors andshouldn't be mixed up. When speaking about the 8 pin secondary connector it is importantto remember that it is formed from 2 2x12v 4pin secondaryconnectors also known as the P4 (ATX12V) connector. Confusion ofthese names might have originated from this connector. I'd like tostress that it is important to keep in mind that it is NOT a P8even if some places will call it so. In fact its name is EPS12V andwas designed by SSI( Server System Infrastructures). The reason i have spoken more about the confusion and the ESP12Vmore than the actual P8 connector is because when looking for P8many look for ESP12V. (MORE)

Early computers were entirely point to point wired either withsoldered or wire wrapped connections. They usually used circuitmodules that plugged into connectors mounted on the mainframe rackto make repair faster (when a problem was located the defectivemodule could be quickly unplugged and a good m…odule plugged in it'splace to get the computer running again while the defective modulewas being repaired on the test bench). In the 1950s printed circuit boards replaced the point to pointwired circuit modules, but the connectors they plugged into werestill point to point wired together with soldered or wire wrappedconnections. Starting with some of the minicomputers in the 1960s largemultilayer printed circuit boards with the connectors for theindividual circuit boards mounted on this large board. These largemultilayer printed circuit boards were called "backplanes" and theconnectors mounted on them "backplane connectors". Theseminicomputers might have several backplanes usually mounted indifferent sections of the rack containing the minicomputer (therack was often larger than the size that was practical to make thebackplane circuit boards). The first microcomputers in the 1970s copied minicomputers and useda single backplane (their chassis were small enough that usuallyone backplane was all that was needed). Beginning with the IBM PCin the 1980s "motherboards" replaced "backplanes", the motherboardcontains much of the circuitry of the computer itself andconnectors for the "daughterboards" while a backplane onlycontained connectors. No modern computers use backplanes or backplane connectors today,they are obsolete. (MORE)
