Thanks for your comments, Debera.  It's obvious that USB has come a long way and still offers compelling benefits as a technology.

bobjenrg,  Thanks for your comments. As far as I know, this technology is not regulated.  Certainly we hope that the government will allow innovation to roll out especially for technologies like this.

Ann,  My impression is that we're seeing adoption at a higher rate now but it has been a gradual move to USB 3.0.  There aren't too many places where the higher speed is really needed but I'm sure the new technology will continue to gain. Plus faster file transfers is always a good thing,

USB 3 AND INDUSTRIAL

Al, the huge improvement in speed and the fact it is compatible with earlier versions is very desirable and much needed.  Let's hope the industry adopts the upgrade in a judicious manner and we see the results quickly on new equipment. Let me ask, does the FED get involved with specifying band width or is this a factor of improved technology and innovation on the part of component providers?  In other words, will be dependent upon the whims of government for incorporation?   Great post--very informative.

Growing trend?

Interesting to see this trend in industrial applications, Al. USB 3.0, as well as USB3 Vision, has been promoted, and increasingly used, in machine vision for awhile now. Do you have a sense of how fast this use is growing in industrial?

According to a study by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, one of the factors in the collapse of the original World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11, 2001, was the reduction in the yield strength of the steel reinforcement as a result of the high temperatures of the fire and the loss of thermal insulation.
Robots are getting more agile and automation systems are becoming more complex. Yet the most impressive development in robotics and automation is increased intelligence.
