It's so easy to control 8 devices via Parallel Computer Port, I'm looking the same for USB, any links to freeware projects, and software for them are welcome
Philips also have PDIUSBD12(and D11) chips that there are some examples (sample project) available on it site with firmware and sch and windows driver.(it is in cookbook format)
bogdanm said:By the way, I've read a few things about USB devices and it seems that using the FT*I chips is much easier than working with the PDI chips. Nevertheless, the latter are a little more flexible.
