1.1 Introduction
The first version of the Universal Serial Bus (USB) specification was released in January 1996.In April 2000 , version 2.0 of the USB specification which supports transfer rates upto 480 Mbps , was released. Because of its low cost, high data-transfer rate, ease of use and flexibility, USB has gained wide acceptance in the computer industry. Today , many peripherals and devices connect to computers through USB interfaces. Currently most general purpose operating systems provide support for USB devices, and it is relatively easy to develop applications in C that access such peripherals. Linux operating system do not provide remote access through USB between different machines .Here we utilize its high bandwidth to transfer files between machines using USB without using any network cables.
1.2 Objectives
The USB remote file access allows high speed transferring of files between two machines.

Device Drivers

...Q1. What is device driver?                  OR          Use of driver software.   Ans.   A device driver or software driver is a computer program allowing higher-level computer programs to interact with a hardware device.                  A driver typically communicates with the device through the computer bus or communications subsystem to which the hardware connects. When a calling program invokes a routine in the driver, the driver issues commands to the device. Once the device sends data back to the driver, the driver may invoke routines in the original calling program. Drivers are hardware-dependent and operating-system-specific. Uses of device driver: a. A device driver simplifies programming by acting as a translator between a hardware device and the applications or operating systems that use it. Programmers can write the higher-level application code independently of whatever specific hardware device it will ultimately control, because code and device can interface in a standard way, regardless of the software superstructure or of underlying hardware   b. The device-driver accepts these generic high-level commands and breaks them into a series of low-level device-specific commands as required by the device being driven.   c. Drivers can provide a level of security as they can run in kernel-mode thereby protecting the operating system from applications running in user-mode.                                               SECTION - B ( 5 MARKS )     ...

...DRIVERS OF GLOBALIZATION PROCESS The key factors seem to underlie the trend towards the increasing globalization of markets and production: 1. The decline of barriers to trade and investment: Decline in Trade barriers: Many of the barriers to international trade took the form of high tariffs on imports of manufactured goods. However, this depressed world demand and contributed to the great depression of the 1930’s. After World War II, the industrialized countries of the West started a process of removing barriers to the free flow of goods, services, and capital between nations. Under GATT, over 140 nations negotiated even further to decrease tariffs and made significant progress on a number of non-tariff issues (e.g. intellectual property, trade in services). The most recent round of negotiations known as Uruguay round was competed in December 1993. The Uruguay round further reduced trade barriers, covering services as well as manufactured goods provided enhanced protection for patents, trade marks and copyrights and established WTO to police the international trading system. With the establishment of the WTO, a mechanism now exists for dispute resolution and the enforcement of trade laws. Average tariff rates have fallen significantly since 1950’s, and under the Uruguay agreement, they have approached 3.9 % by 2000. This removal of barriers to trade has taken place in conjunction with increased trade, world output, and foreign direct investment. Decline in......

Report on Usb

...Contents Introduction 3 History of USB 3 Main Content 3 References 6 Introduction This report well detail and describe the functionalities and the various protocols in which the Universal Serial Bus (USB) uses. The USB is now regarded as the initial tool for any academic, business means or to simply store photos or home videos etc. It is the ultimate portable storage device currently on sale in the market. How did the USB attain this high importance? History of USB The concept of a portable storage device was the idea of an Israeli computer hardware company in the 1990’s. The company created, developed and patented the first portable storage device which was named ‘DiskOnChip’ in 1995. However the development process was helped by a collection of seven companies: Compaq, DEC, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, NEC and Nortel. The USB standard was pre-released in 1994 under version USB 0.7 and officially released in January 1996 under version USB 1.0. The data rate was between 1.5mb/s and 12mb/s. The development of the USB has been constant over the past decade from version USB 1.0 to the recently released version of USB 3.0 of speeds up to 5gb/s. USB version 2.0 was the longest in operation with many devices now still using version 2.0 from the release in the year 2000. The importance and use of USB version 2.0 has been set at speeds 35mb/s to 280mb/s. Many if not all computer devices on the market have USB 2.0 incorporated for USB devices such as plug and......

Usb Introduction N History

...Introduction Of USB History USB—or Universal Serial Bus—is a protocol for connecting peripherals to a computer. It features a standarized port designed to accommodate many different types of hardware devices. Most modern devices such as digital cameras, printers, scanners, flash drives, cell phones, iPods and other MP3 players use some variation of the USB port in their design.The first USB technology began development in 1994, co-invented by Ajay Bhatt of Intel and the USB-IF (USB Implementers Forum, Inc). The organization is comprised of industry leaders like Intel, Microsoft, Compaq, LSI, Apple and Hewlett-Packard. It supports and adopts comprehensive specifications for all aspects of USB technology.Before USB came into existence, computers used serial and parallel ports to plug devices into computers and transfer data. Individual ports were used for peripherals such as keyboards, mice, joysticks and printers. Expansion cards and custom drivers were often required to connect the devices. Parallel ports transferred data at approximately 100 kilobytes per second, where as serial ports ranged from 115 to more than 450 kilobits per second. Some ports could not run simultaneously.The high volume of incompatibilities and the attempt to use multiple......

Nt1110 Usb 3.1

...The new USB 3.1 adds a 10 Gbps speed mode that uses a more efficient data encoding and will deliver more than twice the effective data of existing Super Speed USB over enhanced, fully backward compatible USB connectors and cables. The specification extends the existing Super Speed mechanical, electrical, protocol and hub definition while maintaining compatibility with existing USB 3.0 software stacks and device class protocols as well as with existing 5 Gbps hubs and devices and USB 2.0 products. In January 2013, the USB group had a press release revealing plans to update USB 3.0 to 10 Gbit/s, effectively putting it on par with Thunderbolt by mid-2013. The USB 3.1 specification was released introducing a faster transfer mode called "Super Speed USB 10 Gbps"; its logo features a Super speed (stylized as SUPERSPEED+) caption. The USB 3.1 standard increases the signaling rate to 10 Gbit/s, doubling that of USB 3.0, and reduces line encoding overhead to just 3% by changing the encoding scheme to 128b/132b. Though, some initial tests demonstrated usable transfer speeds of only 7.2 Gbit/s, suggesting a 30% overall overhead. The USB 3.1 standard is backward compatible with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0. Using three power profiles of those defined in the USB Power Delivery Specification, it lets devices with larger energy demands request higher currents and supply voltages from compliant hosts – up to 2 A at 5 V (for a power consumption of up to 10 W), and optionally up to 5 A at either 12 V......

Usb 3.0

...minutes, and minutes like hours. And backups to USB 2.0 appear to crawl along at a snail's pace--so much so that users often become reluctant to perform that essential chore. Such data-transfer scenarios are where the new SuperSpeed USB 3.0 standard and its theoretical, blazing-fast throughput of 5 gigabits per second--as promised by the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF)--will change your life for the better. And if our tests of four new USB 3.0 hard drives from Buffalo Technology, Iomega, Seagate, and Western Digital are indicative, the change will certainly be dramatic. USB 3.0's impressive speed is its raison d'être, part of its beauty is its backward compatibility with USB 2.0. You need a new cable and a new host adapter (or one of the new motherboards built to but support USB 3.0) to achieve USB 3.0 performance. But you can still use a USB 3.0 device on a USB 2.0 port and achieve typical USB 2.0 performance. You may also use USB 2.0 devices on a USB 3.0 port--though, again, with no gain in speed. The technology behind USB 3.0 more closely resembles PCI Express than USB 2.0. Backward compatibility comes from clever connector design, and a dual bus. The designers added four data lines and a ground wire for the new USB 3.0 signals, and retained the existing pair of data lines for use with USB 2.0 devices. The two technologies share the existing power and ground wires, but they are otherwise completely separated. As such, the USB 3.0 connector has design changes to......

...Drivers Drivers come in many different types, and each has their own characteristics. When driving on the road, one can experience several different kinds of drivers which can be divided into three major categories: bad drivers, good drivers and ugly drivers. Most drivers want to reach their destination as fast as they can. However, not all drivers get there the same way. How they get there depends on which category they fall into. First of all, the bad drivers can be described as the morning mad-honker. These drivers are only experienced in a busy town in the morning. They are characterized by hollering, blowing of the horn, and anger. It is believed that their anger is derived from their procrastination in the morning as they prepare for work. Because they typically run late, they tend to speed and often cut off other drivers in the mornings. They can be observed swerving in and out of lanes in order to get back the time they wasted. In bumper to bumper traffic, they often honk and yell, as if these noises will make the vehicles in front of them move faster. People are not accepting of these kind of drivers because they believe that these bad drivers could cause a possible car accident. Secondly, in contrast to bad drivers are good drivers, who make up the majority of drivers. These drivers can be seen in all places. Because they always obey all the driving laws, they will get to their destination with the least amount of trouble. For example, a good driver is usually......

...also worked the night-shift at a local factory, in the Fisher Body Parts division making power window and door lock switches and cruise control devices. There, leaders used Blake’s and Mouton’s grid to assess the resources necessary to achieve increased productivity. The focus was on piece work and although we were paid by the hour, specific productivity standards were set in place; employees were just another cog in the gears of the manufacturing wheel. While exploring the Illinois U.S. Senate race in 2009, I revisited my childhood employer to discuss my past connection and current manufacturing trends. To my surprise, much had changed. The president said that the organization no longer focused on productivity as the primary organizational driver. Leader Member Exchange (LMX) Rocky Hendrickson a longtime business acquaintance, founder and president of Hallmark Automotive Group in Middle Tennessee once told me that,” the key to getting things done is to establish a tension of reciprocity.” In other words, he meant that when you do something for people, create an unspoken “tension” or compelling feeling to repay the act. Politicians and lobbyists are masters at manipulating “tension” and my father, a prominent labor leader, lived by it. When I was young, he used to say, “do something for other’s jimmy, and they’ll be indebted to you. It compels loyalty, feelings of indebtedness.” Officially, Rocky’s tension of reciprocity is called leader-member exchange or LMX for short.......
