USB connector type A
Used most often in computers USB connector type A, flat, rectangular shape. The use of flat connectors instead of the round has a positive influence on the service life and the ease of connecting and disconnecting USB devices with the connector. USB type-A connector was designed primarily for connecting slave devices to the computer. This is important due to the fact that single USB port provides power supply voltage of 5 VDC. Wire with connectors USB type a female on both sides, used for transferring data between two computers. Standard USB cable type A are not designed for such tasks, and using it improperly can lead to irreversible damage to the computers cooperate, and even cause a fire. Choosing the USB cable two way connector with internal thread, check its capacity, compared with the requirements of the device drivers that you want to interconnect with it.
USB connector type B
USB connector type B was designed with a think about the external devices connected to the computer, based. This connector has a cross-section of rectangular shape with two directly determined by the ratio at an angle of 45°. Same as type A connector, has a tightly formed conclusions, providing a robust and reliable sensor. Connector USB type B connector for data transfer for devices-masters. Because of this, the most external, interacting with the computer via USB, requires cable type A-B. USB Connector type B is popular in particular in printers.
The USB type-C
USB type-C connector is one of the newest on the market solutions in the field of physical connections between computing devices. Is characterized by a symmetrical design, which reduces the risk of trying the wrong connection. USB type-C supports USB 1.1, USB 2.0, USB 3.0, USB 3.1 and unifikowane using wires with the old types of USB connectors, such as connector types A, B, microB and other. The use of USB type-C to USB 3.1 standard allows you to exchange data between devices with a bandwidth of 10 Gbps as well as providing power at the maximum voltage to 20 V, current up to 5 A and power of up to 100 V. in addition, the connector is a USB type C provides support for the DisplayPort interface and system quadraphonic sound.
Micro USB connector B type
Introduced by the organization of the USB Implementers Forum Micro USB connector type B, used in mobile phones, navigation systems GPS, computers, PDAs, and digital cameras. Micro USB connector type B is slightly smaller relative to connector type Mini-USB, but also allows data transfer with a bandwidth of up to 480 MB/sec. Depending on the application used all the conclusions of component connectors to transfer data between devices, and provide power and to charge phones and other portable devices are only used insights to the masses and supply.
USB connector Mini-B type
USB connector Mini-B type, the most common versions with four and five conclusions. Such connector is slightly smaller connector USB type A. more recent standard based on the USB Mini-B type connector for USB OTG, which allows you to connect peripheral devices standard for computers of class PC, for devices such as touch phones and tablets. Less popular USB type Mini-B 4 pin connector - this connector is found in some digital cameras.
Connectors USB 3.0 type A
The USB 3.0 connector, type A, are identical in structure with the standard USB connector type A is used, in particular, the standards USB 1.1 and USB 2.0, and the outside is marked in blue connector and insulation pins. This connector was specifically developed for data transmission with bandwidth up to 5 GB/sec, but it allows also data transfer from lower speed to ensure compatibility with older USB standards connectors. USB 3.0 connector type A is used in external hard drives, laptops, as well as complex systems of communication, information technologies.
