Universal Serial Bus (USB) 3.0 is third major version of USB standard for interfacing electronic devices and computers. USB 3.0 offers new transfer rate which is referred as SuperSpeed USB (SS) and can transfer data at up to 5 Gbit/s (625 MB/s), which is around ten times faster than the USB 2.0 standard. User applications demands a high-performance connection between the PC and these increasingly sophisticated peripherals.
USB 3.0 addresses this need by adding higher transfer rate to match new usages and devices. USB 3.0 is bidirectional, low cost, fast, dynamically attached interface which is consistent with the requirements of the PC platforms. The adoption of these devices is increasing over the years due to many benefits offered by USB 3.0 such as ease with which they can be used, convenience, portability, higher read and write speed, and others.
Global USB 3.0 market is driven by increasing consumer demand for advanced and high-speed interfaces. In addition, proliferation of tablet PC's and smartphones and increasing application of USB 3.0 universal docking chipsets in 4K monitors as well as in camera based applications in medical imaging propels the growth of the market.
