    Re: interface printer to 8051

    More information is needed.

    What type of printer is this?

    What is the printer interface (USB, serial, standard Centronics parallel)?

    If the printer 'host-based', meaning that it relies of drivers on the computer-side for processing, then your job is going to be quite difficult.

    If you can choose your own printer, find an older dot-matrix type that is NOT host-based. Look at the specifications to make sure that it will work under DOS. These types of printers are dead simple to run from a microcontroller, as all of the processing is done by the printer itself, and you just have to send it ASCII data and twiddle a few control lines.
