Choosing the right USB communications option depends on several factors, and each solution has different requirements and degrees of flexibility for both the developer and end-user. Is development of USB firmware or drivers required? Does the end-user need to install a driver? Is a PCB redesign required? How much PCB space is available for additional components? This white paper discusses the easiest, most cost-effective way to add USB to new designs or a legacy system.
