To transmit v o signals from the computer to the monitor, there are different standards. In order to ensure compatibility between these standards, there are several adapters which for example allow a monitor with a VGA port on a computer to operate with DVI output. In addition to these standardized adapters that can be used with any computer, there are also vendor-specific adapter that can be used mostly only on certain models. This may be e.g. act to Y-cables that are attached with a plug on the connector of the display card and then have 2 ports for monitors.
You can find the biggest selection from the adapters. These are often used by a PC equipped with additional interfaces. An older printer or scanner, you can, for example, often continue to use by using a -LPT adapter. In addition, there are also so-cal external sound and graphics cards that are operated via and enable the connection of additional monitors or sound devices. Increase the w spread hubs for the number of a ilable ports. Important here, however, is that you should use a powered hub if you want to connect external hard drives or similar at the hub, since these hubs have their own power supply.
Network adapter can be used to make a hard drive or a device networkable. This can range from small devices with a port or to complete a housing where the hard drive is used, act. The LAN adapters are also often referred to as device server and can, for example, be used with several workstations simultaneously access a printer that is otherwise only a interface for a PC.
Host Bus Adapter (HBA)
In order to connect hard disks or other storage devices to the computer system host bus adapter used. These can be found in any hard drive enclosure and ensure the implementation between SATA and port. In addition, there are also adapters for overseas use an hard drive to a SATA port.
