Parallel Cable IV - Will a USB to PS2 converter work for the power connection, if the computer does not have a PS2 connector?

Description

Will a USB to PS2 converter work for the power connection? The computer does not have a PS2 connector for the power connection, it only has a USB connection.

Using a USB to PS2 converter for the power connection has not been tested, and is therefore not supported. Cables have previously been seen to fail to connect in this situation.

Solution

If the computer does not have a PS2 connector, our recommendation would be to purchase a Xilinx USB cable or a Digilent cable.
