A computer port is a hardware or virtual device (software) that allows data to pass from one area to another of the PC's hardware and/or software environment. The Periphial device is usually a hardware device the needs to interface with the appropriate port in order to send, receive or interact with the PC and other devices attached to the PC. An example would be somthime like a USB (universal serial bus) external hardive attached to a USB port in order to read and write data.
Yes, an external peripheral device must have a corresponding expansion port and cable
it is used to interface between controller and peripheral device.. peripheral device otherwise called external device such as LED,LCD...
Port and driver. For example, a printer is a peripheral, you need to plug it into a USB or Parallel port, then install a driver for it.
One bit at a time.
Most use a port and a cable.
This is the communications port on your computer, also called the COM or RS-232 port.
The USB port and many other different ports to serve different functions. A port is a place through which a peripheral device attaches to a computer so that data can be exchanged between it and the operating system.
This is the port IEEE 1394 is also known as Fire Wire
A mouse is a peripheral device which can be plugged into a serial port on older PC's. Nowadays mouse's are plugged in via USB connection.
On a typical setup, only one device can be connected to the ports. However, if you have a special USB port, or a device that will split a USB port, you can connect 2 or more devices.
If your Apple Tv has a female HDMI port and the device you are connecting it to also has an femaleHDMI port.
An interface is a device that interpretates data. A port is only the door in and out from the computer.
port or adapter. A monitor is a peripheral, you plug a cable into a port or adapter on the computer. Most also need a driver, so that could be an answer. They need both, though.
Put a known good device in that port...process of elimination!
USB stands for universal serial bus for short. USB is a universal port that can be used to exchange data between a storage device and a peripheral. Example, you can transfer data from your phone to your system by simply connecting the two with USB.A USB port is a Universal Serial Bus port. This is a universal port that nearly any kind of peripheral can be manufactured to use thereby limiting the number of port TYPES needed on a PC.
A Monitor A keyboard A Printer
Short answer: No. They are different and not compatible. Long answer: If the USB 2.0 device happens to be a hard drive that also has an esata port, then you could use the esata port instead.
The port is an external connection device on the computer which is used to connect different peripherals. Concretely it is a socket (and the corresponding plug) that enables an external device (peripheral) to be attached to a computer (usually to a motherboard or adapter card).
The final SCSI device in the chain of devices must be terminated. If you have only one device and it's attached to a SCSI port, you must terminate that device. If you have two or more SCSI devices that are linked together and to a shared SCSI Port ie: SCSI Port, Device #1, Device #2, etc, then the final device in the 'chain' must be terminated to allow for proper recognition. The SCSI Port also requires a terminator as well.
