USB / micro-USB

Universal Serial Bus (USB) is an industry standard that defines the cables, connectors and communications protocols for connection, communication, and power supply between computers and electronic devices.

The widely used USB 3.0 standard adds the new transfer mode SuperSpeed (SS) that can transfer data at up to 5 Gbit/s (625 MB/s).

For mobile devices the micro-USB connector has become widely common for charging and data transfer.
