USB: The Universal Serial Bus

This will be the book that wakes up the sleeping OS development.

This book explains, from the beginning, how to write code to communicate with the USB, to be able to write a driver for the
four major types of USB controllers; the UHCI, OHCI, EHCI, and the new xHCI. It explains how to send requests to the
devices attached, to return the device's descriptors to be able to configure and use the devices. Some examples include drives,
mice, keyboards, printers, and external hubs. This is all done without any outside help. In other words, you are communicating
directly with the hardware. You are not relying on an existing operating system's function calls. This book also contains example
descriptions of why your driver may not be working and then gives details on how to fix it. If you are an operating system
development enthusiast, a beginner or a more advanced developer, this is a book for your desk.

The author fully supports this book and upon request and receipt of purchase, will send you an .ISO image with example source
code to retrieve a device's Device Descriptor, plugged in to one of the four controller types, along with other source code
described within the book.

USB: The Universal Serial Bus by Benjamin David Lunt.

Available worldwide on amazon.

Hi Craig,
The ISO (with freedos and the utilies - and the source code for the utilities) is available by email from Ben (with proof of purchase).
All the utilities are in C with one in C++.

Mike,

Thanks for the kind words on the newsgroup and forums.
I appreciate it.

I should have a finalized .iso image in a few days. I will
send it then. Would you rather have it .zipped down or
just as with the first one I sent.

Thanks,
Ben

I'm currently working on the manual for bootstrap32 - a PM32 USB bootloader with a PM32 native motherboard BIOS interface.
I'm planning on loosely translating the USB: The Universal Serial Bus code to fasmx.
This will solve the chicken or the egg dilemma - how to develop USB while booting from USB.

future of osdev is there, usb boot with everything to code inside.
say: simple system (fasm ide + documents + code templates + funny asm applications) all on a usb pen with a boot time of less than 3 seconds. Smile

"documents + code templates" are the drivers in assembly programming.

code template to deal with some functionalities can be a sort of primitive driver. a coder using this package can play with all these templates and documents in order to set drivers for the current machine and os design, assuming the user is not lazy.

then, it is important to set a good documentation like would be this usb book.

cvtss2sd: Why not to send an email to the author and ask what he accepts as a proof of purchase?
