Cypress Semiconductor is to provide customers for its EZ-USB chipset with Jungo Software Technologies WinDriver, a cross platform driver development toolkit. WinDriver provides automatic driver code generation for the EZ-USB device family and eases access to EZ-USB hardware.
WinDriver has a graphical development environment, intuitive application programming interfaces (APIs), hardware diagnostic utilities and device driver samples. It also includes libraries customized for Cypress's EZ-USB device family to accelerate driver development.
It provides driver development for Universal Serial Bus (USB) 1.1 and 2.0 hardware under Windows 98/Me/NT/2000/XP. A device driver created with WinDriver can be ported between these operating systems without additional code modification. In addition to USB, WinDriver also supports PCI, CompactPCI, ISA, ISA PnP, and EISA based hardware.
Cypress's EZ-USB microcontrollers target full-speed applications, including printers, scanners, xDSL modems and digital cameras. EZ-USB products cover a range of packages, memory sizes, memory types and I/O configurations.
