Definition

A Universal Serial Bus (USB) port is a communication protocol between electronic devices.

It was developed in the mid-1990s and allows much faster transfer of data between a range of devices. USB ports are standard on most computers and allow a range of MIDI, audio, storage and other devices to be connected and recognised.

USB ports can also send power to some peripheral devices.
