Universal Serial Bus is a specification to establish communication between devices and a host controller. USB has effectively replaced a variety of interfaces such as serial and parallel ports. There are approximately 2 billion USB devices sold per year. Although USB started out primarily being used to connect computer peripherals to PCs such as mice, keyboards, printers, and external hard drives, USB has become common place in smart phones, video game consoles, communications equipment, and even in industrial applications.
