Apple Desktop Bus (ADB) is a bit-serial peripheral bus connecting low-speed devices to computers. It was introduced on the Apple IIGS in 1986 as a way to support low-cost devices like keyboards and mice, allowing them to be connected together in a daisy chain without the need for hubs or other devices. ADB was quickly introduced on later Macintosh models, on later models of NeXT computers, and saw some other 3rd party use as well. Like the similar PS/2 connector used in many PC-compatibles at the time, ADB was rapidly replaced by USB as that system became popular in the late 1990s; the last external ADB port on an Apple product was in 1999, though it remained as an internal-only bus on some Mac models into the 2000s.

  • Come suggerisce il nome, tale interfaccia viene utilizzata per il collegamento degli elementi presenti sulla scrivania, quindi tastiera e mouse principalmente, ma anche tavolette grafiche, trackball e dispositivi di puntamento in genere; a causa della bassa velocità tale porta è invece inadatta al collegamento di periferiche che richiedono un interscambio dati importante. Dal punto di vista elettrico il connettore della porta ADB è analogo ad un qualsiasi connettore S-Video al punto che i cavi ADB Apple possono essere utilizzati come cavi S-Video e viceversa, con notevoli semplificazioni in tutti i casi in cui tastiera e mouse devono essere posizionati ad alcuni metri di distanza dal computer. La porta è alimentata, ed i sistemi che la utilizzano non prevedono il collegamento e lo scollegamento a caldo, ma solo previo spegnimento della macchina. A partire dall'introduzione dell'iMac, Apple ha iniziato a sostituire il connettore con il più moderno, economico e veloce USB, decretando la scomparsa di tale interfaccia. (it)
