Don Anderson and Dave Dzatko's Universal Serial Bus System Architecture, 2nd edition, is based on version 2.0 of the Universal Serial Bus specification and provides in-depth coverage and a detailed discussion of USB. It focuses on the USB protocol, signaling environment, and electrical specifications, along with the hardware/software interaction required to configure and access USB devices.
This second edition has been updated to reflect the changes in the USB specification from the original 1.0 to the current 2.0. The USB 2.0 specification defines high-speed transactions operating at 480 Mbps that increase throughput by a factor of 40 over the older USB devices. New high-bandwidth, ping, and split transactions have also been added to further increase efficiency of the high-speed protocol. The USB 2.0 specification makes major improvements to USB, while maintaining backward compatibility with 1.0 and 1.1 USB devices.
If you design or test hardware or software that involves USB, you need the important information in this book. Universal Serial Bus System Architecture, second edition, is an essential, time-saving tool. The accompanying CD-ROM includes an 85-minute USB 2.0 overview video by Don Anderson, featuring an introduction to the basic concepts underlying USB 2.0 bus operation and protocol.
