This updated edition of the best-selling developer’s guide to the Universal Serial Bus USB interface covers all aspects of project development, including hardware design, device firmware, and host application software. Topics include how to choose a device controller chip, how to write device firmware for USB communications, how to cut development time by using Com;lete device classes, and how to write software to access devices that perform vendor-specific functions.

NET and Visual C. Also covered is how to write device firmware to communicate with the USB host. Please note there is a new edition of this title: Jan Axelson writes about computer programming and electronic technology. Would you like to tell us about a lower price?

This is an excellent tutorial and reference with detailed coverage of all aspects of USB. It is well-organized axelosn very readable, so it makes a good tutorial. It also has a great index to serve as a reference. What more can I say. I am not doing USB 3. It does not provide line-by-line “how to” example code, about which some reviewers complain.


USB Complete: Everything You Need to Develop Custom USB Peripherals – Jan Axelson – Google Books

The book could better serve novice programmers by including some line-by-line example code for a specific library or adelson stack. I did not find this lack to be a hindrance in any way. This books is focused on understanding USB, its organization, enumeration, transactions, etc. It includes significant detail on all of the primary and many of the secondary standard USB “Classes” though the book doesn’t focus on “Classes”. Those details tilt a bit more toward the device embedded side where that information is more applicable, than to the host side programming where most of the low-level implementation detail is hidden in stack and driver library implementations with which most programmers don’t need get into that level of detail.

It also has host-related chapters on “Host Communications” layers, drivers, etc. In summary, I’ve been programming professionally at all levels for over 40 years, but have never written any USB-related software until now.

This book provided me all of the information I needed to implement custom software interacting with USB at all levels and transaction types from the boook using a popular driver library libusband to assist in the definition and implementation of custom embedded code for an ARM-based compound device. I pre-ordered this book, and it just arrived about an hour ago, so keep in mind that this is more of a “first impression” than a deep review.

Axelson sets the bar very high with the title theme of her books, i. Some come closer than others to this laudable goal, but I’m not sure if any of them quite reach that high bar. On a quick look, my biggest issue with this book is that it is Windows-centric. If you are only working with the Windows environment, then this is no doubt a very useful reference. If, like me, you only rarely work in the Windows environment, I think this book is still worth having, but keep in mind that you probably won’t find anything here to address matters specific to your OS.

Exhaustive explanation with careful definitions. Admittedly, the structure of USB is rather complicated, and it has become even more complicated over the years. However, since the author always explains all details and special cases at each stage, the reader gets quickly confused.

For me personally, drawings explaining the overall interrelations between the elements of communication, and practical examples explained would be helpful. When it comes to developing USB hardware, there aren’t many off-the-shelf-how-to books. This is the only one I am aware of. As a result, it wins by default.

Axelson starts by covering the pros and cons of USB, and would be perfect for explaining to a non-technical manager. Simply stated, this book won’t make you a USB genius, but if you are charged with developing a USB device from scratch, it can compress the time required to ramp up. It can save you hours of frustration. I teach a USB class, so I’ve had occasion to review every book on the subject. I’ve chosen Jan’s book for my class text because it is, by a wide margin, the best single book on the Universal Serial Bus I’ve seen.


Jan has the unique talent of talking directly to the user in a very friendly, clear, and easy to read style, while losing absolutely nothing in scope or detail. Instead of the usual kitchen sink approach, Jan zeros in on exactly what you need to know to do the job and covers it completely. And her examples actually work!

If you’re looking for a book that spans basic USB principles to advanced topics, all clearly explained, you can’t go wrong with this book. My intent was to purchase exactly the second edition. Wasn’t looking for newer info.

If that was what I wanted, I’d have ordered the fifth edition. I’m working through some older tutorials that call specifically for the second edition of this book. I’m giving 5 stars just because I’ve seen people go ballistic when given an honest rating. I’m not going to try to defend any ratings.

Just wish I had received what I ordered. This is by far the best discussion of USB I have found. I can’t learn anything from the official USB documentation. This will get you through fomplete nightmare that is USB if you are attempting to write your own tools.

I really don’t know of anything to compare it to, so this seems to be the default. One person found this helpful.
