Host Configuration -- Host Configuration for USB Serial like Peripherals

Host Configuration

Configuration for two hosts are listed here, Microsoft Windows and Linux. It should also be possible to use the eCos USB serial like peripheral driver with other hosts.


The eCos USB serial like peripheral driver can be used in Linux in one of two ways.

Both of these methods will result in the Linux Kernel making a new serial device available. This is typically named /dev/ttyUSB0.

Microsoft Windows

To install the device in a Microsoft Windows system make use of the INF file in host/windows/eCosUsbSerial.inf. Copy this INF file and usbser.sys from your version of Windows into an empty directory. Then plug in the USB device. When prompted to load a driver navigate to the INF file and select it.
