Developers who want to access USB devices from their embedded systems will find a helpful resource in USB Embedded Hosts: The Developeras Guide. This new book from the author of USB Complete shows how small systems can take advantage of the same wealth of USB devices available to conventional PCs. The book begins with a review of USB host communication protocols. Readers then learn which USB host requirements are relaxed for embedded systems and what new requirements some embedded systems must meet. To help in selecting a development platform, the book explores available hardware and software for USB host communications in small systems. The heart of the book focuses on communicating with USB devices. The topics (with example code) include USB drives, keyboards, virtual serial ports, network bridges, mics, speakers, video cameras, and printers, plus devices that donat fit defined USB classes. Also discussed are systems that support both USB host and device functions. The example code is written for the BeagleBoard-xM open development board using a distribution of Linux targeted to small systems. Also covered is how to use Linux commands and utilities to learn about, monitor, and debug communications with USB devices.This new book from the author of USB Complete shows how small systems can take advantage of the same wealth of USB devices available to conventional PCs.
