Universal Serial Bus (USB) Deep Dive Technology Exploration for AV Design and Integration

Presented by Joe Cornwall of Legrand AV at the 2019 Almo Professional AV E4 Experience

The common USB connector has undergone a radical change in just the last year. The introduction of new Power Delivery standards promises to change everything you think you knew about USB. The new Type C connector will change the way USB interfaces with fixed AV assets. And the proliferation of interactive devices means the USB universe is expanding at an ever increasing rate. With new USB power delivery and connection standards in place, a comprehensive understanding of USB design theory and integration practices has never been more important. USB is a core element of advanced system design from control to power to signal transport. This class will prepare the participant with a deep dive understanding of USB 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, 3.1 and PD technology standards, applications and performance. Participants will learn about USB for use with interactive flat panels and projectors, interactive white boards, USB charging stations and more. After completing this course, attendee will have learned how to:

  1. Effectively integrate USB Type A, Type B and new Type C connections and devices in AV projects
  2. Deploy USB technology to properly power, control, charge and connect mobile devices such as smartphones, laptops, tablets and other portable devices into fixed AV designs
  3. Design, specify and troubleshoot systems leveraging the newest USB standards including analysis of the USB power budget and tier-level occupation
