Thanks Mike,

But the problem is I have a USB host controller on the
Embedded system I am working on and would like to support
these devices.

But thanks again for your time.

Cheers,

Tom.

Does anybody know of any USB *** s, USB Ethernet, USB
Modems or USB to serial devices that support CE.net 4.2.

I am also a willing beta tester for above hardware.

Cheers,

Tom Heeley.

I think the problem with these devices is that they are mainly slave
devices, which require a USB Master to control them. The majority of Pocket
PC USB interfaces are themselves only slave devices, so if you connect (say)
USB *** to Pocket PC, you have two slaves and no masters, so nothing
would work.

Hi David,

Thanks for that, should of done a bit more research.

I will try to get an RNDIS compatible adapter and
continue the search for the other device types.

Thanks for your time.

Thanks Mr Loney,

I would like to add that it is a good opportunity for all
USB Camera, USB Modem and USB to serial manufacturers out
there to be first on the HCL, let the race begin (I need
a result soon).

Thanks for your time.

Jay-

The demand for USB camera support on CE is tremendous. First, there
are now LOTS of SBC's with CE/USB Host example:

http://www.yqcomputer.com/

Second, there are TONS of applications, mostly around smart security.
These may be a 'niche' application- but the 'niche' probably holds
100,000 units next year. See what you can do- we need low-res,
high-res, still, 30 fps, every price/performance point, etc. Not
having good support in PB limits the type of OEM that can target these
applications.

Gee, I've been developing USB camera drivers for the Bitsy. Anybody need
help?

Hi Paul,

Thanks for sharing your experience but as you might have
guessed I just wanted to go to the local store and buy
some USB devices that will work with WinCE 4.2 but life
is never that easy, I never wanted to embark on a teeth
pulling exercise.

Thanks again.

Tom.

Is this specification PTP compliant? That's PIMA 15740.

ard to say because I don't know what PTP is. The specifications I cited are
USB device class specifications and are available for your perusal at
www.usb.org. Once they exist (and often before), manufacturers will be
nearly certain to make their devices comply with the appropriate specs.
Unfortunately for consumers, the USB consortium does not enforce a firmware
logo-ing process or (last I knew) any sorts of device class compliance
testing. Which means that there's no way for an end user to tell in advance
whether any given camera will work with the drivers shipped with any given
OS. Caveat emptor.

Tom,
For a piece of hardware to be listed on the CE HCL, it has to have a driver
in the Platform Builder box.
There is no driver for USB Camera in the McKendric box.
We are looking at this internally for a future release.
Your best bet today is to goto a 3rd party or SI to find a driver for a
specific camera and run with it.
