Today, any product that connects to a PC has to have a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 connection in order to be considered up-to-date.

Yet, even with the availability of high-performance silicon components like the Cypress EZ-USB FX2, and the sophisticated software tools on the market, it's still a formidable task to incorporate a USB interface into your product.

The task requires custom firmware, a device driver, and libraries and software to implement even the simplest of interfaces.  It can take weeks—or months—to get a USB interface working, and once you have your device working, your USB device must be assigned both a vendor ID (VID), and product ID (PID).

(VIDs are assigned by the USB Implementers Forum and getting one costs a minimum of $2,000.)

But there's a quicker and easier way to get connected to Hi-Speed USB - QuickUSB®

QuickUSB gives you the ability to include a complex, high-performance computer interface into your product quickly and easily.

Our module is a complete, independently functioning circuit board that includes built-in firmware, and a device driver and software package that works on Windows 98SE, ME, 2K, XP, Vista and Windows 7. It also includes drivers and software applications that work right out of the box.

We also include the source code for all the example applications, so you can learn from them. The QuickUSB Library supports all the popular programming languages and works with any language that can call a DLL. QuickUSB is currently supported on Linux, and MacOS X support is on the way.

QuickUSB License Pack

Don't want to use a module in your end product? No problem.

In fact, we encourage you to incorporate the QuickUSB circuitry into your product, then license the QuickUSB Firmware. We deliver the firmware as a pre-programmed EEPROM, or an electronic license that allows you to program the firmware into a blank EEPROM you purchase yourself.

So, get the 'QuickUSB Advantage' in your design. It really does work. You get great performace in a fully-tested plug-in board—or USB built into your own circuit board design, and you don't even have to learn USB.
