Parallel Port Button Holder

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The DS1410D parallel port button holder interfaces Dallas Semiconductor authorization buttons to host computers via a PC parallel port. In conjunction with the buttons, the DS1410D provides a high security storage vault for critical execution control information. Only users that possess a button can utilize the software, preventing execution of unauthorized copies.

The modularity of the DS1410D allows for easy feature customization. The device supports the insertion of two buttons, which can be removed and replaced to vary functionality.

For example, a DS1427 time button can be programmed for a 30 day expiration, issued with a DS1410D, and a software copy. The evaluator can be converted into a registered user by issuing a DS1425 button and inserting it into the second receptacle.

The DS1410D supports the same buttons as other Dallas button holders. This allows standardization of any protection scheme across virtually all hardware platforms, regardless of the operating system. The buttons remain constant, and the button holders change according to the specific platform interface.
