Hi

I am working on a project that requires me to interface a particular hardware with my PC through a USB port and stream some data through this connection. However i have never worked on USB interfacing before and am looking for some good resources or tutorials to start work. I might also need to use a microcontroller in the interfacing circuitry. I cant buy expensive ready made interfacing tools available in the market and would want build them on my own. It would be great if you guys could suggest something related to such a project that might be of help..

Thanks in advance.!

What you need is FTDI usb chip .They were among the first to offer USB connectivity with the embedded world . They provide you with the USB drivers .On the PC side they will show as the USB connection being a serial port .So is very simple to make a pc application . It just like openning COM port ..
Very simple .very elegant .very reliable !
