On-demand Web Seminar
USB is widely deployed in embedded devices of all kinds, resulting in simple interconnectivity and interoperability.
This simplicity comes at a cost: the internal functions of USB are quite complex. This is of no consequence to the user of a USB-enabled device, but the embedded software developer does need some understanding of USB internals. Even if a commercial USB stack is employed, an appreciation of how it works enables it to be used optimally.
In this session, the history and internal operation of USB will be reprised in detail. Then, the changes and enhancements that come along with USB 3 will be reviewed.
What You Will Learn
- The overall functionality of a USB system
- The basics of how USB software works
- What improvements are added by USB 3.0
