Rajaram Regupathy, software engineer at Cypress Semiconductor Corp has written a book on how to implement USB functionality in a device connected to android operating system.
The book named“Unboxing Android USB: A Hands-On Approach with Real-World Examples” is now available from publisher Apress Media LLC.
The 200-page book has teaching material on how to implement apps with USB functionality. Core platform developers working on USB, audio and media can use the book to learn everything from Android APIs to Linux kernels. Technical managers and architects can use the book to understand the Android USB subsystem at a high level, while students can use it as a do-it-yourself reference guide. The real-world examples in the book use USB solutions from Cypress, including its EZ-USB FX3 USB 3.0 peripheral controller.
“Mr. Regupathy does an excellent job of explaining all facets of the Android USB operation and his working examples will, I am sure, inspire developers to create an even richer environment for all Android users,” said John Hyde, USB expert and author. “The Cypress FX3 solution used in the examples can operate at SuperSpeed USB, so as Android platforms migrate in this direction, future application needs are also covered.”
