What is a Peripheral Device

A peripheral device, sometimes called an add-on, is any attached device, external or internal, that provides additional functionality to a PC. Below are some examples of a peripheral device. To know more about peripheral devices, visit the Gameravel website.

Speakers

A computer speaker is just another common type of output device. In the past, speakers received their audio signal through a 3.5mm connector, but today it’s increasingly common for computer speakers to be wireless and use Bluetooth technology.

Microphone

Microphones are audio input devices. The microphone sends an excellent signal to the PC where it can be recorded or transmitted over the Internet. Microphones are now often built into laptops, webcams, and cell phones.

Monitors

Monitors look like outdoor televisions but typically have a higher screen resolution than pixels, allowing for more visual detail, and they also lack a tuner for channel switching. Like televisions, modern computer monitors use flat-screen technology, and their price has dropped in recent decades.

Computer Keyboard

The user moves letters, numbers, and other symbols to provide instruction and data to the computer. Using a keyboard to enter a whole range of information is called typing. In the past, keyboards were connected to the computer through a DIN jack, but today they are more likely to be connected through a USB jack or become wireless.

Webcams

They can be built-in or external. Web cameras are often used to allow people to see each other when communicating over the global network, or perhaps to record video or other images on websites. In addition to computers, webcams can also be integrated into cell phones.

Mouse

The device was called a “mouse” because the inventors thought the cable connecting the device to the computer resembled a mouse’s tail. Today, the mouse is often connected to computers via wireless technologies.
