Portable adapter for barcode scanners

I.Y Soon, C.K Yeo, Y.H Sng
1999 Microprocessors and microsystems  
This paper describes the design of a low-cost portable adapter for commercial barcode scanners. The portable adapter transforms any ordinary barcode scanner into a portable standalone data collector.  ...  Ordinary barcode scanners are linked to personal computers and hence render the scanner non-portable unless the scanner is connected to a notebook or palm-top computer.  ...  Upon activation of the portable adapter, an initialisation is performed on the 8255 PPI and the LCD.  ...
