Introduction

USB hubs have become popular in particular with laptops and different computers. With the need for devices that require a USB connection, the USB hubs have emerged very usefully. These hubs provide extra USB ports for other cables (like- USB to HDMI adapters) to a setup. Hubs are the USB version of a standard extension lead plug, transforming one USB socket into a USB hub. These are plugged in the computer or laptops, and the additional ports that come with a USB hub are used to connect keyboards, mice, and other like devices.



Technology and Specification of USB hubs

The Universal Serial Bus hub, also termed an upstream port, hosts other devices or connections. The hubs are usually transparent for the system and are not visible on system mapping. The host hub broadcasts the data received or sent from the upstream port to the downstream ports, yet the data collected from the downstream port is signalled to just the host and the upstream port.

With further advancement in technology, the intelligent USB hubs (including type c HDMI cable) can be connected to the PC or laptop via USB 3.0 or USB-C. Several USB ports range from 4 USB 3.0 ports to 7 USB 3.0 ports, along with backward compatibility of USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 in some. The transported data is rated up to five GBPS along with the support of hot-swapping. The difference arises when the USB port hub is 3.0 rather than being USB 2.0, as the former transfers files or data much faster than the latter.

Uses and Benefits of USB hubs

USB hubs provide for enhanced productivity by eliminating the requirement of swapping cables to access various tangential devices. Whatever the number of USB ports inbuilt in the computer or laptop, the USB hub will surely increase its number. The USB hubs offer the connection to Ethernet, SD, HDMI (USB to HDMI adapters), and VGA along with memory cards, etc.

• Auto Configuration

The host device's operating system requires installing the USB hub device just one time. Afterward, the computer driver recognizes tangential devices and is loaded automatically, configuring the connected device whenever tangential devices are connected.

• Easy to use

USB hubs (even the ones USB-c to HDMI adapters) are designed quite simply, with the interface being pretty easy to use.

• Compact size

The USB hubs have USB ports that are very narrow or compact in size and dimension.

• Speed

The USB hubs ensure that the data is transferred quite efficiently and swiftly. It has a speed range of around 1.5Mbit/s up to 10Gbit/s.

• Low cost

The price of USB hubs is very affordable because of their high demand and various manufacturers. The connector and the cables (type c to HDMI cable) are pretty light on the pocket if used.

Conclusion

The most important use that the USB hub provides is the additional capability to connect more devices to the PC or laptop with fewer inbuilt USB ports. The USB hubs make it possible to use or interact with various devices concurrently (even those with USB-C to HDMI adapters).
