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

Thanks Al presher for this post it was very informative to me . To be very frank i use my USB daily but unfortunately i was not that much eductaed about the USB technology and ports . I beleive USB technology is taking a great move and in future many new developments will be done in this 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?

If you see a hitchhiker along the road in Canada this summer, it may not be human. That’s because a robot is thumbing its way across our neighbor to the north as part of a collaborative research project by several Canadian universities.
Stanford University researchers have found a way to realize what’s been called the “Holy Grail” of battery-design research -- designing a pure lithium anode for lithium-based batteries. The design has great potential to provide unprecedented efficiency and performance in lithium-based batteries that could substantially drive down the cost of electric vehicles and solve the charging problems associated with smartphones.

Robots in films during the 2000s hit the big time; no longer are they the sidekicks of nerdy character actors.

Robots (or androids or cyborgs) are fully mainstream in the 2000s.
