Universal Serial Bus System Architecture, Second Edition
provides an in-depth discussion of USB and is based on the 2.0 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.
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 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.
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.
