Need ISA slot in new computer

January 26, 2005 at 09:32:43
Specs: XP, 3.2MHz/1GB

I have an old piece of scientific equipment that connects to my old computer via a 16 bit ISA slot. I am buying a new computer and am afraid that the new computer will be incompatible with my old piece of equipment. Any advice?

Happy to have helped.

You will not find a modern motherboard with ISA slots for public retail I will guess.

You're talking generations-old technology. Since ISA, there's been PCI and now PCI-E. It's doubtful you'll find my in the way of ISA slots. What type of device is it? Is it an interface card? If the company is still in existence and still selling the device, they must have something current available to replace it.

This link- http://www.ibase-i.com.tw/index.htm -is to a company that can supply a new motherboard with ISA slots.

You may want to check on the availability of a replacement for the ISA device.

Continuity there is a critical as is the availability of a PC slot to put it in.

Well you could buy the new computer, and use the old one just for your scientific equip. (space permitting)
