    PCI card needed to output TTL pulses through computer via parallel port (case 25817)

    Hi,

    I have recently purchased a psychophysiology equipment (BIOPAC) and need to connect my deskstop computer to the STP100C part of the biopac machine (https://www.biopac.com/product/isola...al-interfaces/) in order to sync the stimuli presented through DirectRT and Medialab with the psychophysiological data. In order to do this I will need to connect a 21-pin ribbon cable (https://www.biopac.com/product/ribbon-cables/) to my deskstop computer, which doesn't have a 21-pin output. I asked BIOPAC the adaptor I will need to connect the ribbon cable to the computer but they told me to check with "the manufacturer of the stimulus presentation software" that I am using. May I know what PCI card can I use to output TTL pulses through my desktop computer via a parallel port?

    Thanks!

    Please tell me the full version number (i.e., 20xx.x.xxx) of your copy of DirectRT. You can find it by opening DirectRT and selecting Help>About DirectRT from the main menu bar.

    Hi,

    Anything here in the $10 - $30 range should work nicely. These are all commodity products now:

    Which flavour of Windows are you using? 7? 10?
