The USB-001 is a custom manufactured, unique Printed Circuit Board (PCB) that eliminates the need for any type of serial cables, or adapters.
Tired of fumbling around with that "dongle"? Wondering why Apple Computer designed the interconnect port which serves to no purpose besides requireing that a Newton user purchase an adapter to use common serial devices?
To give Newton designers credit, the Interconnect Port can do much more than serial communication however much of these capabilities never had a chance to be utlized before the Newton was discontinued by Apple Inc.
This board is similar to the 'Dongle Destroyer' Internal Serial Board
that was produced by NewtonSales in 2004 and functions to remove the need for any type of adaptors to connect your Newton 2000 or 2100 unit to a Mac or Windows computer through USB.
No more need for Interconnect Port Adaptor,
No more need for serial cables, and finally,
No more need for USB to serial adaptors.
