USB 3.0 Technology



USB 3.0

USB 3.0 is the next major revision of the ubiquitous
Universal Serial Bus, created in
1996 by a consortium of companies led by Intel to
dramatically simplify the
connection between host
computer and peripheral
devices. Fast forwarding to
2009, USB 2.0 has been firmly entrenched as the de-facto
interface standard in the PC
world for years (with about 6
billion devices sold), and yet
still the need for more speed
by ever faster computing hardware and ever greater
bandwidth demands again
drive us to where a couple of
hundred megabits per second
is just not fast enough.
In 2007, Intel demonstrated SuperSpeed USB at the Intel
Developer Forum. Version 1.0
of the USB 3.0 (confusing, isn’t
it?) specification was
completed on November 17,
2008. As such, the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF)
has taken over managing the
specifications and publishes
the relevant technical
documents necessary to allow
the world of developers and hardware manufacturers to
begin to develop products
around the USB 3.0 protocol.
In a nutshell, USB 3.0 promises
the following:

● Higher transfer rates (up
to 4.8Gbps)

● Increased maximum bus
power and increased
device current draw to
better accommodate power-hungry devices

● New power management
features

● Full-duplex data transfers
and support for new
transfer types New connectors and cables
for higher speed data
transfer while maintaining
backward USB 2.0
compatibility
