    What is hot swapping? What devices is hot-swappable?

    The popularity of USB technology has gradually brought hot-swapping to users, although prior to this devices such as keyboards and mice could also meet the definition of a hot-swapping device. However, such command input devices do not come with a storage function, so there is no need to worry about damaging the device. However, for external devices such as USB flash drives, hard drives and video cables that have the function of transferring or storing data, the nature of hot-swapping essentially facilitates the daily use of such devices. What is hot swapping? By definition, hot-plugging is the ability to replace or add devices to the current computer system without having to use or reboot the computer system. We call devices that support such functions hot-swappable. Since there is hot-swappable, there will naturally be “cold-swappable”, some fixed in the computer chassis, such as the CPU, graphics cards and memory sticks do not support hot-plugging, if you replace the CPU on the way to run the computer, then your computer will simply crash. Is hot swapping the same as random swapping? No, not all devices that support hot-swapping can be unplugged and plugged in when you want, like a keyboard and mouse. Some devices are connected to the computer, but may need to install the driver to run properly, which is why the concept of plug-and-play (drive-free) is created. For USB flash drives and other storage devices, in the process of unplugging the device, you have to make sure that the device …

    Is Thunderbolt 3 the Same as USB C?

    Recently, there emerges a new type of the interface whose shape is quite similar to the USB-C while it normally has a ‘flash’ logo nearby. So what is the difference between these two types of the interface? Firstly, we should not confused the notion of USB Type C interface with thunderbolt considering they are totally different types of things. USB Type C is a specific shape of interface which is comparable with USB Type A or USB Type B interface while thunderbolt is a type of protocol that decide the bandwidth or transmission speed of the interface. Thus, thunderbolt should be compared with the protocol such as USB 3.1 or USB 2.0. USB 3.1 protocol, though published with the USB C interface, is not completely complied with the USB C. To put it simple, USB C interface doesn’t necessarily support USB 3.1 and USB 3.1 standard which could also be supported with USB Type A, etc., is not unique for USB Type C interface. Thunderbolt is developed by Intel with the participation of Apple hence the original thunderbolt is restricted to Apple devices. Considering the expensive cost of adopting mini DP interface, to promote the former generation of mini DP is not easy. With the prevalence of USB Type C, Intel decides to remove the mini DP interface with the USB C. In parameters, thunderbolt 3 could realize most function of USB C with a much higher transmission speed(40Gbps bi-direction of thunderbolt 3). The border bandwidth means that this single …

    How to Make a Network Cable

    Network cable is an essential product when we are intended to decorated our new home or arrange the cabling in various circumstances.Comparing to home cabling which only demanded a short distance network cable that most of us are more inclined to buy a ready-made network cable with RJ45 plug, other occasions such as engineer cabling or office cable require a network cable that exceed the normal distance patch cable in the market. When you are placed under this situation, it will be really helpful if you can handle the RJ45 plug installation by yourself. Before the installation, you are advised to purchase a network cable crimping tool. Most of the crimping tool on the market are now 3-in-1 function, which means that it can realized all the three function: stripping, cutting and crimping in one tool. In short, we can divide the installation process into five steps. First of all, it’s about stripping the jacket(insulation layer) of the patch cable. In order to avoid any damage to the internal wire, the operator are suggested to use the crimping tool to cut a light circle first, then slightly rotate the crimping tool to peel off the jacket from the cable and expose the internal wire core. Step two is about arrange the correct sequence of the internal wire which we could inspect 8 different type of metal cables after the stripping. They are made in different colors and color combinations for distinctive recognition: orange, orange+white, green, green+white, blue, blue+white, brown and …

    How Long Can an HDMI Cable Be

    HDMI is the abbreviation for High Definition Multimedia Interface, a digital video/audio interface technology. HDMI cable is the abbreviation for the connection cable between multiple high definition multimedia, which can transmit uncompressed high definition video and multi-channel audio data in high quality. HDMI cable mainly transmits digital signals, the quality of HDMI cables on the market varies, many HDMI cables in the transmission distance of more than 10 meters after the degree of attenuation is more serious, and in the choice of HDMI cable must buy a suitable length for their own, not too long, otherwise it is not conducive to transmission. Attenuation is the HDMI cable receiving device in how many meters can maintain the signal transmission. In fact, attenuation in the case of higher frequencies, the signal will be more attenuated. When using HDMI cables, the main thing to look at is the quality. If the quality is good, pure copper HDMI cables can generally transmit up to 60 meters. Generally speaking, for best results, the recommended HDMI connection length is usually within 15feet (about 4.6m), and certain better quality HDMI cables can do up to 30feet (about 9m). If the quality control of the cable itself is done well (although not necessarily expensive), there are HDMI cables that can achieve 50feet (about 15m) can also work properly. But when it is this long, the situation will become more delicate, you will probably see the display device side of the “flicker” phenomenon. You may also experience a more …

    Will cloud computing be the future trend?

    What is a cloud computer? it’s about sharing resources, software and information over a network. In this case, via “the Internet” or, more correctly, an Internet connection. Information and data are stored on physical or virtual servers that are maintained and controlled by cloud computing providers. As a personal or corporate cloud computer user, you can access information stored on the “cloud” through an Internet connection How does the cloud computer works? To understand how a cloud system works, it’s easier to divide it into two parts: the front end and the back end. They are connected to each other through a network (usually the Internet). The front end is the user or client side of the computer. The back end is the “cloud” part of the system. The front end consists of the client’s computer or computer network. It is also the application that is essential to access the cloud computer system. Not all cloud computing systems have the same user interface. On the back end of the cloud technology system, there are the various computers, servers, and data storage systems that make up the cloud. A cloud computer system may include any computer program from data processing to video games. Typically, each application has its own dedicated server. How does cloud storage work? Connected through an Internet service, cloud storage works by enabling users to access and download data to any selected device (such as a laptop, tablet or smart phone). Cloud storage users can also edit documents …
