Hi all,
First of all: I am such a novise that I'm almost afaid of posting in this forum. Please have patience with me My experience with assembly code is next to nothing.
I would like to get started making a simple HID SUB devise. Just to find out how thing works, it could be a box with a button that is starting a routine in Windows when pressed.
So my questions are:
1. What USB controller is the easiest to start with?
2. What demo-board should I use?
3. What software should I use for writing code to the USB controller?
4. Is there any good reading material over the subject that you may refer to?

I'm sure there will be a 100 more questions, and I'm open to all input, advise and suggestions you might have!

Try going through the collaterals of encore series of chips... they're easier to make HID devices with....

Also try going through the hid_kb example that comes with FX2LP DVK(Cy3684).... both have their set of software... having a glance at the trm is the best way to get started....
