USB Embedded Pipe Driver
HCC have implemented an Embedded Pipe for USB which takes the pain out of interfacing a USB device with a host application.
installable Windows XP driver is provided which creates a standard Comm
Object in the PC which can be accessed using simple read/write object
methods. Additionally HCC provide a simple configuration application
which allows the user to configure the USB connection. Access to the
Embedded Pipe Comm Object can be from any program - VC, Perl, VB,
One sample VC++ application included is an Embedded Pipe
Terminal, roughly analogous to HyperTerm, but connected through a raw
embedded side could not be simpler - the user simply read and writes
from the pipe to communicate with the host application. The internals
of US are entirely hidden from the developer.
