Intel introduces USB 2

The WinHEC (Windows Hardware Engineering Conference) has already brought a lot of innovations to the day and now USB 2.0 has been added. Intel Vice President Pat Gelsinger presented the final specification of USB 2.0 at WinHEC. The specification comprises a total of 650 pages that are available for download by interested parties.

The WinHEC (Windows Hardware Engineering Conference ) has already brought a lot of innovations to the day and now USB 2.0 joins them. Intel Vice President Pat Gelsinger presented the final specification of USB 2.0 at WinHEC. The specification comprises a total of 650 pages that can be downloaded by interested parties. USB 2.0 will be 40 times as fast as its predecessor with a transfer rate of 480 Mbit/s, but will be able to use the same cables and connectors. In order to prevent the new USB 2.0 devices from being slowed down by the old USB 1.1 devices, you want to use the fast USB 2.0 transmission as long as possible. The lower transfer rate of the USB 1.1 standard is only used at the last HUB in front of the end user. It is hoped that with USB 2.0 you can prevail over IEEE 1394 (Firewire), which is often used for the transmission of video data.
