Segger adds audio support for embedded systems with
Audio class support for emUSB-Host means that embedded systems with a USB Host interface can now use audio devices such as microphones, speakers, headphones, conferencing systems or USB-to-audio adapters. Segger says this makes a USB Host interface even more valuable in an embedded system. Audio is added to emUSB-Host at run time, in the same way as all other supported device classes, says Segger, to minimise the memory footprint. Only the code needs to be added to the system.
Segger’s emUSB-Host software supports embedded systems and allows developers to add a microphone, speaker, memory stick, keyboard, mouse or network connection to a system. Multiple devices can be connected at the same time, notes Segger. emUSB-Host also supports USB-Hubs.
