What is the USB cable? How does it work?
The term USB stands for “Universal Serial Bus”. FTDI Cables assemblies are some of the most popular cable types available, used mostly to connect computers to peripheral devices such as cameras, video cameras, printers, scanners, and more. USB device communication is done through pipes. These pipes are a connection pathway from the host controller to an addressable buffer called an endpoint. The USB cable provides four pathways- two power conductors and two twisted signal conductors. The USB device that uses full speed bandwidth devices must have a twisted pair D+ and D- conductors. The data is transferred through the D+ and D- connectors while Vbus and Gnd connectors provide power to the USB device.
What are the Types of USB cables?
USB-A. This is a standard connector, and you can find it at one end of almost every USB cable. This is a rectangular connector and can only be installed in one way. USB-A is most commonly used in computers or power outlets. Many TVs, game systems, cars, media players, and other devices also have one or more. When charging, you will connect the USB-A side into the USB-plug or into a laptop or computer. The IP67 Cables will only enter the port in one way. Yes, you won’t find a cable with USB-A on both ends, because there is actually no useful situation. Make sure to insert the cable correctly to avoid damage to the cable or equipment.
