USB Notes:

  • If the computer doesn't have enough ports for all the peripherals, a hub is necessary.
  • Maximum length on individual cables is 5 Meters.
  • No terminators are needed on this bus.
  • The A (flat) type port would be considered the "out" port on a computer or hub.
  • The B (square) type port would be considered an "in" port on hubs or peripherals.
  • A typical USB "out" (Type-A) port can provide up to 500mA.
  • The speed is 12 Megabytes per second for USB 1.1 or 480 Megabytes per second for USB 2.0, the maximum number of peripherals to a controller is 63 (hubs needed when the computer runs out of ports).
