Unit 3: Assignment 1: Video Summary 1
Clip 1.07 Summary: In conclusion ports and connectors I learned how to identify the different type of ports and the connectors which are used for those ports. Also know which devices use those particular ports and connectors. For ports there are serial, parallel, and game ports. For devices there are mouse’s and keyboards. There is also a NIC (network interface card). To connect to video there is VGI, DVI and S-Video. New port and connectors are the USB1 and USB2 which come with connector A and connector B. There are also the SCSI connectors a narrow 50 pin and a wide 68 pin. IEEE 1394 uses serial communication and will replace SCSI in the future. Lastly for multimedia we have the earphones, microphone and speaker jacks which come color coded.

* Serial port: a socket that can be used for connecting devices that send data one bit at a time; often used for connecting the mouse or a modem.

* Parallel port: a socket that can be used for connecting devices that send and receive data at more than one bit at a time; often used for connecting printers.

* USB: an external serial bus interface standard for connecting peripheral devices to a computer. Up to 127 devices simultaneously connected to computer.

* SCSI: a standard for computer interface ports featuring faster data transmission and greater flexibility than normal ports.
I think that this video clip gave me a better understanding of the ports and connectors and the devices used for those respectfully. Understanding the 3 types of USB devices and IEEE 1394 cable was a little confusing but I grasped it. I will use...
