Last Updated:

USB has created its own market space by replacing interfaces such as PS/2, UART and parallel port, and today’s laptops are mostly devoid of these legacy interfaces. It is a rare sight today to see a PS/2 keyboard or mouse being used on a laptop as they have been replaced by more flexible USB keyboards and mice. USB, however, is not just for consumer electronics devices.  It also has a wide variety of applications in image sensing market, including cameras, biometric applications like fingerprint-based USB drives, fingerprint desktop authentication, and user finger print enrollment, to name a few.
