Happy 20th Birthday USB! from Nov.15 1995 to Nov.15 2015

The father of the USB, Ajay Bhatt told us the story of usb’s birth.

Ajay Bhatt

Ajay Bhatt, from wikipedia, Ajay V. Bhatt is an Indian-American computer architect who helped define and develop several widely used technologies, including USB, AGP, PCI Express, Platform Power management architecture and various chipset improvements. And he is an Intel fellow.

Ajay Bhatt told the media about all of the story of the invertion of USB.“Anytime (my family) wanted to do something simple like print a letter for my daughter’s school, I would get a phone call from my wife that she just can’t print it,” Bhatt said. “She does something, but nothing happens to the printer.” It is a humble story.

And during the interview Ajay Bhatt told us why why it didn’t have a reversible connector.”We wanted to solve the problem with four pins and very few gates on our silicon and also four wires,” Bhatt said. “To make things flippable you need twice as many wires, that means twice the cost, and you need a lot more circuits. We could have done it but the cost of this would not have been acceptable to people.”
