"I give this book a solid 'thumbs up' for engineers and product designers who must implement an embedded system and have it operate as a USB host." --www.DevMonkey.edn.com (November 2011)

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
There is a small chapter on how to use low-level USB facilities for a custom device, but not enough to make it useful. I didn't want a book about how to read (e.g.) keyboard presses, I wanted a book about how to use the USB port, and talk to endpoints etc., preferably using low-level ioctl calls. This is not that book.
USB, yes, it is mentioned, a lot of how to communicate with a devices. Embedded? Sorry a Linux system is not embedded. That is a multi user desktop / server operating system; has nothing to do with embedded. Host? EHCI, OHCI is not even mentioned, so no word about host controller programming. Only a lot of high level Linux interface software interfacing with libraries that has absolutely no relevance to programming embedded host controllers. Very misleading title, waste of money. Should have read the reviews better before ordering.
I also have Jan Axelson's "USB Complete" which I'd say is good for newbies.
The only thing I didn't like this book is the lack of one example that could go from the hardware (building our PCB with a USB Controller) to the implementation part (although it covers very well the software implementation part, it as tons of code examples).
The book is good, but you have to read it in the shortest time you can or else you'll end up forgetting most of its information, but that's normal with all complex specifications.
