최신 업데이트: 2014년 6월 4일

“Unboxing Android USB” Provides Real-World Examples with Various USB Device Classes Using Multiple Cypress Products, Including EZ-USB® FX3™, USB-Serial and EZ-USB HX3


SAN JOSE, Calif., 2014년 6월 4일 – A new book entitled “Unboxing Android USB: A Hands-On Approach with Real-World Examples” is now available from publisher Apress Media LLC. Written by Rajaram Regupathy, software engineer at Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ: CY), the book explains the various USB class specifications and provides detailed instructions on how to implement USB functionality in a device connected to an Android platform. The book is available for purchase on Amazon.com.

The 200-page book is written primarily for application developers and engineers who do hands-on work with Android, teaching them how to implement apps with USB functionality. Core platform developers working on USB, audio and media can use the book to learn everything from Android APIs to Linux kernels. Technical managers and architects can use the book to understand the Android USB subsystem at a high level, while students can use it as a do-it-yourself reference guide. The real-world examples in the book use USB solutions from Cypress, including its EZ-USB® FX3™ USB 3.0 peripheral controller.

“Mr. Regupathy does an excellent job of explaining all facets of the Android USB operation and his working examples will, I am sure, inspire developers to create an even richer environment for all Android users,” said John Hyde, USB expert and author. “The Cypress FX3 solution used in the examples can operate at SuperSpeed USB, so as Android platforms migrate in this direction, future application needs are also covered.”

Rajaram Regupathy holds a master's degree in software systems from BITS Pilani and has 15 years of professional experience in developing firmware and system software embedded products. He holds patents relating to embedded domain and is also a senior member of the Association for Computing Machinery. A Linux and open source enthusiast, he has published a book on Linux USB stack programming and other open source articles.

Cypress is a leading provider of USB solutions. Recent additions to Cypress’s USB portfolio include EZ-USB FX3S™—the world’s most flexible USB 3.0 peripheral controller with storage connectivity, EZ-USB CX3™—a highly flexible camera controller that connects a CSI-2 interface to USB 3.0, HX3—a 4-port USB 3.0 hub controller with a Shared Link™ feature that enables up to eight downstream ports and advanced charging, and USB-Serial—a configurable dual channel bridge that connects UART/SPI/I2C interfaces to USB, while adding CapSense® capacitive touch-sensing and advanced charging.
