How to Choose Best Adapters and Connectors for
A computer connector is a device that is used for connecting two
devices and is part of the cord that is plugged into a port for connecting
one device to another. Also known as I/O connectors (short for input
output connectors) in IT world, they usually come with pins or plugs
that are plugged into a socket for making connection.
These pins or plugs are usually fixed with the corresponding electric
wires that form the cable. Connectors can be of many types, such as:
Monitor Connectors - HD15 15 pins in three rows ( used for PC's SVGA
video cards and monitor cables) and DB15 15 pins in two rows ( used
for MAC monitors).
Other PC/Mac connectors:-
Parallel/Printer Cable - CN36 (female, male), DB25 (female, male),
HPCN36 male, MINIDIN- 8 (female) Serial Mac connector.
Serial Computer Cable- DB25 serial connector, DB9 serial connectors.
USB and Firewire Connectors - "i.Link" connector, "Firewire"
connector, USB type "A" and type "B" connector, Mini USB and Mini
connector or Standard stereo connector.
A computer adapter on the other hand is a device that enable one
electronic or hardware interface to be modified (or made compatible)
in to another electronic or hardware interface. In computers, the
adapters usually take the form of a card that is slid in to a slot on the
motherboard of the computer.
The information that is exchanged between the devices that the card
supports and the microprocessor of the computer is then adapted by
the card. Thus, with adapters, computers gain additional functionality
or compatibility. For example, video adapter provides the computer the
capability to display video on its monitor. Similarly network adapters
are the network cards which allow computers to connect to a network.
The peripherals of almost all PCs today use adapters to communicate,
like: USB adapters for keyboards, printers etc., Display adapters for
monitors, and network adapters for connecting to a network.
In today's era of advance technology and information science, where
computers and similar devices have become the focal point for running
any tool or machine, both computer connectors and adapters play an
important role in making sure that these equipment work without
unwanted intermissions. That is why while buying them, certain factors
should be considered like availability, durability and adaptability.
