Universal Serial Bus (USB)

A standard specification governing the connection between a physical device (e.g., mouse, keyboard) to a controller, usually a computer system.

Universal Serial Bus (USB) is generally considered the successor to earlier, more complex versions of serial and universal physical ports on computer systems. A physical port on a computer system or device that complies with the USB standard is usually referred to as a 'USB port'.

USB specifications are designed to make connecting a variety of peripherals to a computer easy and efficient, as well as allowing rapid transfer of data. There are currently three USB standards in use - 1.1, 2.0 and 3.0 - which support data speeds of up to 12 Mbps, 480 Mbps and 5 Gbps, respectively.
