Details: Join us for a three-day hands-on workshop on learning the Universal 
Serial Bus and applying USB communications in embedded systems. This workshop 
is targeted for the embedded systems engineer (hardware and/or software) and 
managers. The class will feature the newly-released Freescale Flexis JM-series 
8- and 32-bit pin-compatible USB microcontrollers and includes a DEMOJM 
development system with both processors.
Level: Intermediate / Advanced 
Prerequisites: knowledge of embedded systems concepts and development, 
including rudimentary C language coding. 
Participants may bring their own laptops but will be using class computers 
for the workshop.  There will be a considerable amount of development 
software installed on the computers (all are provided on CD for the student 
to take with them). 
Topics to be covered: 
USB Specification: 
                Devices, Hosts, and On-the-go 
Versions 1.0 / 1.1 / 2.0 differences 
USB Communications: 
Principles of USB Device Design 
Introduction to the CodeWarrior development environment 
Hands-on examples: Human Interface Device, Communications Device Class 
Talking to Your Application - Use of Visual C++ and Visual Basic to write 
drivers, APIs and a GUI application to interface to a USB device (includes 
brief VB tutorial) 
Considerations for Mass Storage devices 
Hands-on example: talking to a USB keyboard 
Principles of USB Host Design 
Hands-on example: reading a USB memory "stick" 
USB On-the-go: putting it all together 
Making it Legal: Registering and Testing considerations 
Cost: $1295 for IEEE members; $1595 for non-members
