USB Under the Hood
On-demand Web Seminar
This session illustrates how the ease of use of USB hides a great deal of complexity "under the hood". The architecture, modes of operation and use case variations of USB are outlined in detail. Some thought is given to the future of USB technology.
The Universal Serial Bus (USB) has become ubiquitous as a means of connecting peripheral devices to PCs. Most peripheral devices are embedded systems, so the developers of these products need to understand how to implement USB.
What You Will Learn
- How USB works
- How to select USB software variants
- Why an off-the-shelf solution is attractive
- What the future holds for USB
