Now that we've learned about motherboard and their varying form factors, we can explore the components on the motherboard and we must start with input/output ports. For demonstration purposes, we revisit a motherboard and explain some of the additional component parts that facilitate the input/output of data. The purpose of input/output ports is to have the built-in capacity to interface with/connect to mouse, keyboard and monitor, etc. We'll diagram and show you how to build a motherboard from scratch and why it's also essential to have USB, audio, power button, reset button, as part of the motherboard inherent functionality regardless of what the form factor is for that motherboard.
