Parallel Port for ADRF6850 Eval Board?

Dear ADI engineers,

I recently bought an ADRF eval board which comes with a cable to program it via the PC parallel port. Now I's like to use this with a laptop (a Dell Inspiron 1720) that has an expresscard slot but of course no parallel port. Can one of the many expresscard -to-parallel adapters such as the Startech EC1PECPS or others using the Oxford OxPCI chipsets and stating they are "not limited to printing" be used here? Some of the better-known adapters cost half as much as the ADRF eval board so I thought it's better to ask!


Thanks! - Ram
