Griffin iMate is an ADB-to-USB adapter to connect ADB-based devices (keyboard, mouse, joystick, tablet, …) to your USB-only Mac or PC.

The iMate needs no software if you’re connecting a standard ADB device like a keyboard, mouse, or some bar code readers. More complicated devices such as tablets, software dongles, etc., often have their own drivers. These devices require the iMate driver in addition to their own software.

The 1st download is iMate driver software 2.7.0 for Mac OS 9.
The 2nd download is iMate driver software 1.5.3 for Mac OS X.

Citing the iMate support page as linked in the article above with the "Purchase" link:

I am trying to use a hardware device called software protection dongle with my iMac. Can I connect it through the iMate?

You need the iMate driver software in order to use software protection “dongles”. The driver supports all dongles that we have tested. This represents most of the dongle-protected programs. You can check our compatibility list to see if your dongle is supported.

In Mac OS X:

Applications that communicate with ADB devices like hardware protection dongles and color calibrators may work with the iMate OS X Driver when “Classic claims iMate” is selected in the iMate preference pane. However keep in mind that we have not been able to make it work reliably in all cases so we cannot guarantee complete compatibility.

Note: The iMate may not work correctly with Tiger (10.4.6).

Will this work with hardware dongles? Anyone know?
