The Universal Serial Bus (USB) is the industry standard for serial communications. It was originally intended as a replacement for the old-style serial and parallel connections on a PC, but its usefulness has broadened to include a myriad of other kinds of devices. It is the interface of choice for devices including mice, keyboards, printers, gamepads, joysticks, scanners, digital cameras, networking and communications devices, and both magnetic- and flash-based storage devices.

The uses of USB have extended beyond PC applications to include:

·? ? ? ? ? Home and portable audio, including digital file sharing

·? ? ? ? ? Automotive audio, including MP3 connectivity

·? ? ? ? ? Handheld scanners and meters

·? ? ? ? ? Medical patient monitors: to upgrade software and download diagnostics for analysis

Tim Clark and Art Anderson will discuss the implementation of the USB component of a microcontroller chip, as well as the development of supporting drivers and the use of in-circuit debuggers.

Cheri Keller will discuss the Microchip Design Partner Program, a unique program which makes it possible for consultants to benefit from their high-volume designs.
