"A must-have PC architecture reference set."

MindShare's Second Edition of their USB System Architecture book, based on the 2.0 version of the Universal Serial Bus specification, 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. The USB 2.0 specification defines high-speed transactions operating at 480Mb/s 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. 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.

Following an overview of the USB architecture, the book next covers low- and full-speed device operation followed by high-speed device operation and configuration.

Note: This book does not cover SuperSpeed USB. For that topic please check out our book on USB 3.0 Technology

Key Topics:

  • Hot plug support (detection of low-, full-, and high-speed devices) Electrical signaling at the 1.5, 12, and 480Mb/s rates
  • 2.0 hub operation (including split transaction support)
  • 2.0 high-speed protocol (including high-bandwidth and ping transactions)
  • High-speed transceiver test modes
