USB Explained: Is the Universal Serial Bus for You?
From Orange Bytes.Devices are being announced and delivered weekly that support this new attachment method
The intent of the USB architecture is to provide a replacement for the aging serial and parallel ports on existing computers
Those ports have not changed much since the original PC design and their use imposes limitations
The unit can be plugged in to a different port each time with no consequence
While the port does have speed limitations (discussed later), the one plug fits all design is clearly there
Windows 95B (the OEM release) and Windows 98 include USB support
Installing the USB on a system requires the installation of the software and turning on the USB ports in the BIOS
For those computers that do not have a built in USB port, there are PCI based USB port cards that cost about $40 to provide the capability
The USB port extension that was added to my computer had five wires, one more than the basic four needed for use
The USB NetworkWhat happens when a device is plugged into a USB port? The wheels are set in motion
All of the devices on the USB ports are then enumerated and each is assigned a unique device number, which also includes a corresponding pipe number for physical device communications

Information on the Universal Serial Bus, Part I
Provides tutorial, information links, and recommended reference books on the
Universal Serial Bus.
It is becoming increasingly important in today's electronics world
One of the reasons that USB was implemented was to replace existing serial and parallel ports on computers
Up to 127 devices can theoretically be used on a single USB port, but realistically this could cause bandwidth problems and other potential complications
USB supports "plug and play" -- the operator does not need to be heavily involved in the set-up process
USB Specifications and Operating Program Support is a non-profit corporation formed by a group of companies that developed the initial USB specification
It supported 1.5 Mb/s (low speed) and 12 Mb/s (high speed) transfer rates
Although the USB 2.0 specification has been released, operating programs for personal computers are not expected to have USB 2.0 support until about the fourth quarter of 2001
A few peripherals supporting USB 2.0 have already begun to show up on the market in late 2000
Windows 95 (and earlier versions of Windows) has no USB support
A sub-release of Windows 95 (OEM Service Release 2) was issued to computer manufacturers only and it added somewhat limited support for the USB protocol
