EZ-USB AN2131 Board Downloader / News: Recent posts

Virsion 1.0 Released - includes Waldo example!

An end-to-end example was added - Waldo. The demo is in the
source (Ezusb2131/Examples/Waldo) along with an extensive
README.txt.

This example was used at LinuxWorld (New York 2003) as part of an
HP ProLiant Gigabit network teaming demonstration using the Linux Bonding
driver.

This is an end-to-end example using a DeVaSys I2C/IO
(www.devasys.com/usbi2cio.htm) board. The USB board controls two servos, one

to review and modify.... read more

Version 0.4 Released!

A special hack was added for developers when the device re-enumerates as an EZUSB device (venid=0x547, prodid=0x2131) after it has been downloaded by the EZUSB2131 driver. In this case the developer does not want the EZUSB2131 driver to claim the device after it re-enumerates. This is achieved by the ignore_renum_modula module parameter, ignore_renum_modula forces the re-enumeration to be ignored when (number_of_connects%ignore_renum_modula)==0. The number_of_connects variable increases with each ezusb device connection. So, passing ignore_renum_modula=2 as a module parameter would cause every other ezusb connection to be ignored. If the ezusb device is ignored, a message stating so will be logged in /var/log/messages. ... read more
