Product description

From the Back Cover

"This series of books is truly an important part of my library.... They are consistently accurate.... I would recommend them to anyone doing hardware design or support, as well as to any developers who write low-level system code."
Paul Tomlinson
Windows Developer's Journal

Universal Serial Bus System Architecture provides an in-depth discussion of USB and is based on the 1.0 version of the Universal Serial Bus specification. It focuses on the USB protocol, signaling environment, and electrical specifications, along with the hardware/software interaction required to configure and access USB devices. Although this book does not focus on writing USB device drivers, it does contain useful background information that aids in understanding the USB software environment. Key topics include:

  • differential signaling environment
  • device configuration
  • suspend/resume operations
  • device descriptors
  • device requests (commands)
  • transfer mechanisms
  • USB transaction protocols
  • bus-powered devices
  • self-powered devices
  • host controller designs (UHC and OHC)
  • error detection and handling
  • device class definitions
If you design or test hardware or software that involves USB, Universal Serial Bus System Architecture is an essential, time-saving tool.

The PC System Architecture Series is a crisply written and comprehensive set of guides to the most important PC hardware standards. Each title is designed to illustrate the relationship between the software and hardware and explains thoroughly the architecture, features, and operations of systems built using one particular type of chip or hardware specification.
