"Building 32-Bit USB Peripheral Applications with Libusb" by Dennis Cecic — Mar. 7, 2009
Are you still trying to use Serial/Parallel ports for PC interfacing? Good luck. USB has emerged as the de-facto standard interface for PC connectivity. Unfortunately for developers, the USB programming model is relatively complex, compared to these traditional interfaces. The objective of this 1-day class is to review the important aspects of USB peripheral development (electrical, protocol, mechanical, certification), as well as providing hands-on experience in implementing a custom PC Host application using the cross-platform Libusb API, which will exchange data with a high-performance 32-bit USB microcontroller. The course will be run in a fully instrumented computer laboratory.
