I was wondering if anyone can tell me just exactly how a Universal Serial
Bus works. I know that it is somewhat related to a parallel or serial
port, but I cannot find any information on how those work either. I've
been trying to find information on USB, but everywhere I go the only
information I can find is on what the USB is used for. Please reply
a.s.a.p. because I am in desperate need of assistance. Thank You.
Have you checked out USB.org? They have a very good F.A.Q. there that
explains a lot about the functions of USB as well as how it works. The URL
for the USB F.A.Q. is:
Also, there is a group called the USB-IF that basically is a group of
companies that work together to develop the standards for the technology.
Many corporate web sites have information regarding USB-IF. Hope this
