 Can be used for input.  Any item connected to computer but is secondary in relation to the CPU. .  Any input or output component that connects to computer. and storage. output.What is peripheral devices?  A piece of hardware that is outside the main computer.

.

.  Contain metal disks called “platters”. ceramic.  Contain two or more stacked platters with read/write heads for each side. or glass.What is hard disk?  High-speed.  Platter is made from aluminum. high-capacity storage devices. coated with magnetic materials such as iron oxide.

.

. reflective areas.  Flat.  Microscopic indentations called “pits”. which a signal corresponding to a “0”. which sends a signal corresponding to a “1”.What is optical devices?  Storage devices that use laser beams to read patterns etched into plastic disks. called “lands”.

.

HDTV recorder. Internet Video. Video Conferences.  To create standards for delivering audio and video data.  Can be used many applications such as DVD player. etc. .What is MPEG compression?  Compression through spatial and temporal.

What is flash sticks?  Storage devices have no mechanical or moving parts and use integrated circuits.  Data transfer takes place at very high speeds and the devices are very robust.  Virtually replaced floppy disks as a portable storage medium being easy to carry around. .

.

or wirelessly.  Typically have high storage capacities and often used to back up computers or serve as a network drive.What is external drive technology?  A portable storage device that can be attached to a computer through a USB or FireWire connection. .

.

 Connects between a computer and peripheral devices.  Allows “hot swapping” which means that you can plug and unplug it while the computer is on.  A representative peripheral interface.What is USB?  Preferred way to connect devices. .

What is USB 2. .0?  Support for much faster transfers.  A 40-times increase was found to be feasible. for a bus speed of 480 Megabits per second.

0 Gbit/s.  Speeds 10x faster than 2.0.What is USB 3.  Backward compatible with USB 2.  "SuperSpeed" bus provides a fourth transfer mode at 5.0?  Also referred to as SuperSpeed USB.  Optimized power efficiency.  Communication is full-duplex during SuperSpeed.0. .
