#373 Configuration descriptors larger than 127 bytes don't work


If you set a configuration descriptor larger than 127 bytes the USB device won't work at all.

The problem is that EP0 IN/OUT data transfers are handled just as any other endpoint transfers, and the registers are different.

Particularly, in the OTG_FS_DIEPTSIZ0 register the XFRSIZ bit field has ONLY 7 bits, hence the limitation to 127 bytes.

I've traced the execution of a working example of the ST OTG library, and what is does for EP0 IN transfers is splitting it in several transfers of the maximum packet length, setting PKTCNT=1 for each and enabling the completion interrupt where a new transfer is set up until there are no more bytes to transfer.

    Hi, this is a known problem, it has been discussed in the forum for a while, fixing it requires a special code path for EP0 only so it is not a simple fix. Thanks for opening a ticket anyway.

    Any chance this can be given some attention as it's completely stopped the project I'm working on?

    I committed an experimental fix in the repository trunk, could you confirm it works in your scenario?
