Excuse my English.
So, I'm used to make my projects using parallel port.
But, of course, pport is almost dead.
So, I don't have any idea about how to find/buy/use an I/O USB card that gives me exactly what a parallel port gaves me: really simple I/O signals.
Where can I find a good and simple USB card (to start with, for example 2 stepper motors and 5 or 6 sensors - I can make the drivers [despite I don't like it] - I just need the signals)?
I use Linux!! So it has to be a really standard card.
Do you have any indication?
I really don't like to make my own cards (despite I can make some and I've made my pport cards). It's just because I'm not good with that stuff (too much time and efforts to ridiculous results).
I'm a software developer and all I want to do is read/write signals, process into my software, and make the mechanical stuffs (it's really fun).
So, too much blah, blah.
Thanks for any help
