Typical Application—Connecting Instruments in a Medical Lab
In medical labs, research scientists typically collect large quantities of data from many samples using a variety of different instruments. Most research devices have parameters that can be accessed via a serial port for convenient reconfiguration. Laptops are often used as convenient and space-efficient computing solutions in medical labs, but most modern laptops no longer offer serial ports and only come equipped with USB ports. This presents a connectivity issue unless the USB ports can be expanded into serial ports.
