Hi-Speed USB OTG drivers boost software
ARC International has developed class and device drivers for Hi-Speed USB On-The-Go (OTG) applications.
ARC International has developed class and device drivers for Hi-Speed USB On-The-Go (OTG) applications The new drivers complement ARC's existing USB software stack to form the industry's first complete software package for Hi-Speed USB OTG devices, enabling customers to reduce development costs and accelerate their time to market
The drivers are available precompiled for the company's ARCtangent microprocessors, and as ANSI C source code for other popular processor architectures, such as ARM and MIPS.
ARC developed the class and device drivers for the six primary USB classes: mass storage, printers, human interface devices (HID), hubs, audio and communications.
"We're building on the success of our host-only USB software stacks to provide fully-tested device and class drivers for the emerging USB On-The-Go market", said Mike Gulett, ARC's President and CEO.
"To date, class drivers for USB On-The-Go have not been readily available to system designers, making our complete driver solutions extremely attractive to developers looking for a time-to-market advantage".
The ARC device drivers can also be used as a starting point for developers wishing to customise their own device drivers to implement value-added features that will differentiate their products.
Using the ARC device drivers as sample code provides designers with a head start on their customised solution and contributes to lower development costs.
ARC used its internally developed device drivers to fully test and debug the company's corresponding class drivers.
Customers can be assured that the ARC driver sets are proven complete solutions that provide a stable platform for developing their end products.
Drivers for the company's ARCtangent microprocessors are provided in native code.
Drivers for other processor architectures are provided as source code.
ARC's existing USB software stack includes a USB host API, a USB OTG API component and a USB device API.
Class drivers are available now.
