HCC’s USB Host stack is a scalable suite that enables an embedded host to control a variety of USB devices including pen drives, printers, audio devices, joysticks, virtual serial ports and network interfaces.
The HCC Embedded USB Host base system is the core of HCC’s USB host stack solution. It provides an interface for any number of USB host class drivers to communicate with their corresponding USB device class drivers.
HCC’s USB device stack allows developers to integrate USB device functionality into their embedded devices. It is available with a comprehensive suite of class drivers that gives the device many functional possibilities, including operating as a pen-drive, virtual serial port, joystick, audio system or a network card.

Each class driver has specific features but the common features are:
- Conforms to the HCC Advanced Embedded Framework.
- Designed for integration with both RTOS and non-RTOS based systems.
- Compatible with all HCC USB host controllers.
- Interface speeds include Low (1.5Mbs), Full (12Mbs), and High Speed (480Mbps).
- Transfer types include Control, Interrupt, Bulk, and Isochronous.
- Supports multiple devices connected simultaneously.
- Uses a system of callbacks for user-specified events.
