The parallel port is dead! Long live the parallel port!
There is still some I/O tinkering that could benefit from having a standard parallel printer port (LPT) connection to the Arduino world.
The "LPTshield" is exactly that...
For tinkering with any LPT-interfaced legacy hardware! Just plug it into LPTshield and start twiddling bits!
I designed this board specifically for a CNC-buddy who was playing with an older CNC rig. It had a standard DB25 I/O cable, intended to use a DOS-PC as the control system. He wanted to play with the Arduino "GRBL" system, so a standard parallel-port was a handy addition. A few months later - poof! The LPTshield was born!
I'm currently offering this PCB as a blank board only. Schematic & BOM is provided, along with a bit of rudimentary Arduino code to help you get going.
NOTE: I'm offering just the blank PCB at this time. There is one photo of my first prototype, assembled and stacked together with an Arduino-UnoR3. It fits and works perfectly.
