Technology changes very fast, from big computers of almost of size of room to portable laptops,from very slow internet to really fast 4G network.Technology has a place in every dimension of daily life. Today i will talk about the drastic change in pendrives and will also review SANDISK CONNECT WIRELESS STICK.
USB flash drives were invented at M-Systems, an Israeli company, in a US patent filed in April 5, 1999 by Amir Ban, Dov Moran and Oron Ogdan, all M-Systems employees at the time.The product was announced by the company in September 2000, and was first sold by IBM in 8MB capacity starting December 15, 2000.Lets see how it has changed drastically…
In 2000, Lexar introduced a Compact Flash (CF) card with a USB connection, and a companion card read/writer and USB cable that eliminated the need for a USB hub.
By 2003, most USB flash drives had USB 2.0 connectivity, which has 480 Mbit/s as the transfer rate upper bound; after accounting for the protocol overhead that translates to a 35 MB/s effective throughput.
Like USB 2.0 before it, USB 3.0 dramatically improved data transfer rates compared to its predecessor. It was announced in late 2008, but consumer devices were not available until the beginning of 2010. The USB 3.0 interface specifies transfer rates up to 5 Gbit/s (625 MB/s), compared to USB 2.0’s 480 Mbit/s (60 MB/s)
Manufacturers have announced USB 3.1 type-C flash drives with read/write speeds of around 530 MB/s.
