USB is an acronym for the Universal Serial Bus, a method for attaching a wide variety of devices to a host system. USB provides for hot-swap of devices, and network-like communications that allow for additional ports to be added to a system by way of internal or external hubs, often mitigating the need to physically open a host system in order to add more device capacity.
