Universal Serial Bus
Since its inception in 1995 the Universal Serial Bus (USB 1.0) has been an integral part of cable interconnects between the host computer and computer peripherals.
Some examples of these peripherals are keyboards, mice, speakers, printers, scanners, cameras and external hard drives.
Lorom’s complete line of assemblies goes from Male Type A USB 2.0 to USB 3.0 to various Type B micro and mini connectors.
These plug and play master slave connections that are hot swappable can be used by devices to supply power as well.
Some of the important features of USB cable assemblies are the following:
- Upstream and downstream connectivity
- Provides electrical power
- Controls data transfer
- Used to configure the USB devices
- Runs the device drivers
- Manages power and bandwidth
Lorom’s high performance cable assemblies, not only comply with today’s standards but are also poised and ready to meet the future requirements of tomorrow, today.
The next generation of USB Standards will go to 10 Gbps and beyond and Lorom is capable of delivering the highest bandwidth with the best possible value that our vertically integrated manufacturing facilities can deliver.
At Lorom we can push the technology because we control all aspects of manufacturing from copper drawing to final assembly.
USB Compliant devices can reach the following speeds:
- USB 3.0 Super Speed USB – 5 Gbps
- USB 2.0 High Speed USB – 480 Mbps
- USB 1.1 Full Speed USB – 12 Mbps
