USB Design by Example: A Practical Guide to Building I/O Devices

Front Cover
Intel Press, 2001 - Computers - 510 pages
This unique guide goes beyond all the Universal Serial Bus (USB) specification overviews to provide you with the expert knowledge and skills you need to design and implement USB I/O devices. It is organized around a series of fully documented, real-world examples, and is structured to serve as both a step-by-step guide for creating specific devices and a complete reference to USB. Design examples cover most USB classes (HID, communications, audio, mass-storage and hub) and provide insights into high-speed USB 2.0 devices, including a device driver for a vendor class called blockio.

Intel insider John Hyde:

• Provides examples, complete with schematics and source code, that gradually increase in complexity
• Describes many vendor solutions and shows how to pick the ones best suited to your project needs
• Explains how to design a vast array of devices, including data acquisition, audio, video and computer-telephony examples

The CD-ROM contains:

• Source code and project files for all the examples in the book (PC Host and I/O device)
• Evaluation versions of design and debug tools
• The USB specification and supporting class and test documents
• Categorized links to other USB solution suppliers
