Hi,

The solution is here:

Parallel Ports

Used for Parallel communication (multi bit parallel)

Can transmit 1 bit at a time

Can transmit 8 bits or more at a time

Faster data transmission

Hey Jessiebannon,

In the current decade USB ports have replaced parallel/serial port confusion. But still they are not vanished out permanently. Anyways as you need the information, we are here to share it.

So here is the difference.

Parallel Ports: Serial Ports:
Whole byte transmission  Bit by bit transmission
Example: LPT printer Example: Modem, com port 
Parallel connector has more pins Serial port uses less pins
Can connect devices up to 6 feet Can connect devices up to 10 feet
Uses single loop for transmission  Different loop for outgoing and incoming

Hope that’s enough to know. Have a good day.
