representation of the TinyUSB stack.#

Device Stack#

Supports multiple device configurations by dynamically changing usb descriptors. Low power functions such like suspend, resume, and remote wakeup. Following device classes are supported:

  • Audio Class 2.0 (UAC2)

  • Bluetooth Host Controller Interface (BTH HCI)

  • Communication Class (CDC)

  • Device Firmware Update (DFU): DFU mode (WIP) and Runtinme

  • Human Interface Device (HID): Generic (In & Out), Keyboard, Mouse, Gamepad etc …

  • Mass Storage Class (MSC): with multiple LUNs

  • Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI)

  • Network with RNDIS, CDC-ECM (work in progress)

  • USB Test and Measurement Class (USBTMC)

  • Vendor-specific class support with generic In & Out endpoints. Can be used with MS OS 2.0 compatible descriptor to load winUSB driver without INF file.

  • WebUSB with vendor-specific class

If you have special need, usbd_app_driver_get_cb() can be used to write your own class driver without modifying the stack. Here is how RPi team add their reset interface raspberrypi/pico-sdk#197

Host Stack#

  • Human Interface Device (HID): Keyboard, Mouse, Generic

  • Mass Storage Class (MSC)

  • Hub currently only supports 1 level of hub (due to my laziness)

OS Abstraction layer#

TinyUSB is completely thread-safe by pushing all ISR events into a central queue, then process it later in the non-ISR context task function. It also uses semaphore/mutex to access shared resources such as CDC FIFO. Therefore the stack needs to use some of OS’s basic APIs. Following OSes are already supported out of the box.

  • No OS

  • FreeRTOS

  • Mynewt Due to the newt package build system, Mynewt examples are better to be on its own repo
