NO. However, the products that have Windows GUI software and serial port interfaces work well with USB <-> serial adaptors.
We have tested our ClearView Mathias, QuickWriter, PICWriter and the Parallax upgrade kit with a couple of these adaptors with success.
One product we tested was a combination 4 serial port & 2 USB hub. Another was a dedicated single serial port adaptor.
We use standard Windows calls for all serial port interaction; no direct hardware access or custom drivers. Any properly implemented USB <-> Serial adaptor driver will work with our software.
We do not know of any USB <-> parallel port adaptors that work with non-printer, parallel port devices (like our Memory Emulators, JAZZ drives, ZIP drives...)
