A USB (universal serial bus) is a standard data transmission media for transferring power, data and other electrical signals, used in communication products, particularly desktop computers and laptop computers and the related peripherals such as scanners, printers, digital speakers, modems, compact disk drives, radio frequency transceivers, video/audio links, MP3 players, hard drives, DVD drives, CD drives, smart card/bar code readers, digital cameras, digital video recorders, camcorders, speakers and amplifiers. USB connectors have the advantages of higher data transmission speed than earlier RS232 connectors, high expandability, hot swappable capability, ease of installation and maintenance. A USB connector replaces different kinds of serial and parallel port connectors with a standardized plug and port connection. A USB connector is generally comprised of a connector body, a cable connected to the connector body, and an insulative shell covered on the connector body and a part of the cable to secure the connector body and the cable together. There are two standard types of USB (Universal Serial Bus) electrical connectors, namely A-type and B-type USB connectors. Type A connector uses a receptacle that contains four pins in a straight line on one side of a connector plate. Type B connector comprises two pins on either side of the receptacle connector plate.
