Industry Standard Interface: USB
The Universal Serial Bus (USB) is an industry standard for the connection of multiple peripherals to a host computer. The standard is sponsored by industry leaders such as Intel®, Microsoft, Compaq and NEC and supported by hundreds of other manufacturers.
USB has been available on all desktops and notebooks since 1997. In the year 2000 USB has gained a significant market momentum due to the introduction of many USB peripherals and many computers which simply do not offer any other connectivity for peripherals. Most new notebooks, network computers and Apple® iMac™ all attach traditional human interface devices like the keyboard and mouse through USB.
Symbol scanners now attach to this new class of machines like any other peripheral!
In the retail point-of-sale terminal arena, the IBM SurePos POS 7X0 terminal also moved to USB for all its retail peripherals.
