Saelig Intros Universal USB Controller
USB interface module.
Pittsford, NY — Saelig Company, Inc. has introduced IO-Warrior56, a universal USB controller that allows easy access to input or output functions via a USB bus. The controller has 50 generic I/O lines, and also operates as an I2C/SPI master, allowing interfacing with a wide range of available ICs.
The product offers a simple access to the USB since it has been designed as a generic HID device; the protocol is all in its chip. Only a few simple lines of code are needed to access the I/O pins. Using this solution, simple devices — such as relays, switches, keypads, or a small display — are easily connected to a computer. It eliminates the need to develop specific code for a USB-enabled microcontroller, developing a unique driver with lots of documentation, using expensive development systems. Now driving LCDs, LEDs, or keypads from USB becomes quick, painless and easy. The interface provides: full-speed USB 2.0 compliant interface (12MBit/sec); 50 general purpose I/O Pins, typ. 1000Hz rate (input or output); I2C master function, 50, 100, or 400kHz; SPI master interface, up to 12MBit/sec, throughput up to 62Kbytes/sec; controls for various display modules, including most graphic modules. The interface drives up to 8 x 64 LED matrix; drives 8 x 8 switch or button matrix; provides software support for Mac (10.2 and up), Linux (Kernel 2.6), and Windows® (2K/XP/Vista/7). It operates from a single +5V power supply (50mA operating, 25µA suspend); 0.1-in. spaced 56-pin module.; extended temperature range is -40 to +85°C.
