Bulk endpoints for mass data transfers?

Post by david.harrison » Mon Oct 08, 2007 7:18 pm

I am using AVR-USB to transfer up to 4MBytes of data over Control Message requests using a Control Message payload size of 128 bytes. The data is written to an external FLASH chip using AVR's SPI interface. The external flash memory's page size is 256 bytes, just a little over the max 254 bytes payload size for AVR-USB. That is why I use 128 bytes at a time.

While this works, it is abyssmally slow. I am also using libusb-win32 and/or LibUsbDotNet on Windows XP Professional.

I realize that Bulk Endpoints are not officially supported in USB 1.1, but Christian seems to indicate that most PCs allow it anyway.

Does anyone have any C code for the AVR end and C# code for the Windows end to implement bulk endpoint transfers?

Thanks :P
