DESCRIPTION

The libusb20 library implements functions to be able to easily access and control USB through the USB file system interface. The libusb20 interfaces are specific to the
.Fx usb stack and are not available on other operating systems, portable applications should consider using libusb(3).

USB TRANSFER OPERATIONS

libusb20_tr_close will release all kernel resources associated with an USB xfer. This function returns zero upon success. Non-zero return values indicate a LIBUSB20_ERROR value.

libusb20_tr_open will allocate kernel buffer resources according to max_buf_size and max_frame_count associated with an USB pxfer and bind the transfer to the specified ep_no. max_buf_size is the minimum buffer size which the data transport layer has to support. If max_buf_size is zero, the libusb20 library will use wMaxPacketSize to compute the buffer size. This can be useful for isochronous transfers. The actual buffer size can be greater than max_buf_size and is returned by libusb20_tr_get_max_total_length. If max_frame_count is OR’ed with LIBUSB20_MAX_FRAME_PRE_SCALE the remaining part of the argument is converted from milliseconds into the actual number of frames rounded up, when this function returns. This flag is only valid for ISOCHRONOUS transfers and has no effect for other transfer types. The actual number of frames setup is found by calling libusb20_tr_get_max_frames. This function returns zero upon success. Non-zero return values indicate a LIBUSB20_ERROR value.

libusb20_tr_open_stream is identical to libusb20_tr_open except that a stream ID can be specified for BULK endpoints having such a feature. libusb20_tr_open can be used to open stream ID zero.

libusb20_tr_get_pointer will return a pointer to the allocated USB transfer according to the pdev and tr_index arguments. This function returns NULL in case of failure.

libusb20_tr_get_time_complete will return the completion time of an USB transfer in millisecond units. This function is most useful for isochronous USB transfers when doing echo cancelling.

libusb20_tr_get_actual_frames will return the actual number of USB frames after an USB transfer completed. A value of zero means that no data was transferred.

libusb20_tr_get_actual_length will return the sum of the actual length for all transferred USB frames for the given USB transfer.

libusb20_tr_get_max_frames will return the maximum number of USB frames that were allocated when an USB transfer was setup for the given USB transfer.

libusb20_tr_get_max_packet_length will return the maximum packet length in bytes associated with the given USB transfer. The packet length can be used round up buffer sizes so that short USB packets are avoided for proxy buffers.

libusb20_tr_get_max_total_length will return the maximum value for the data length sum of all USB frames associated with an USB transfer. In case of control transfers the value returned does not include the length of the SETUP packet, 8 bytes, which is part of frame zero. The returned value of this function is always aligned to the maximum packet size, wMaxPacketSize, of the endpoint which the USB transfer is bound to.

libusb20_tr_get_status will return the status of an USB transfer. Status values are defined by a set of LIBUSB20_TRANSFER_XXX enums.

libusb20_tr_pending will return non-zero if the given USB transfer is pending for completion. Else this function returns zero.

libusb20_tr_callback_wrapper This is an internal function used to wrap asynchronous USB callbacks.

libusb20_tr_clear_stall_sync This is an internal function used to synchronously clear the stall on the given USB transfer. Please see the USB specification for more information on stall clearing. If the given USB transfer is pending when this function is called, the USB transfer will complete with an error after that this function has been called.

libusb20_tr_drain will stop the given USB transfer and will not return until the USB transfer has been stopped in hardware.

libusb20_tr_set_buffer is used to set the buffer pointer for the given USB transfer and fr_index. Typically the frame index is zero.

libusb20_tr_set_callback is used to set the USB callback for asynchronous USB transfers. The callback type is defined by libusb20_tr_callback_t.

libusb20_tr_set_flags is used to set various USB flags for the given USB transfer.
LIBUSB20_TRANSFER_SINGLE_SHORT_NOT_OK
  Report a short frame as error.
LIBUSB20_TRANSFER_MULTI_SHORT_NOT_OK Multiple short frames are not allowed.
LIBUSB20_TRANSFER_FORCE_SHORT All transmitted frames are short terminated.
LIBUSB20_TRANSFER_DO_CLEAR_STALL Will do a clear-stall before starting the transfer.

libusb20_tr_get_length returns the length of the given USB frame by index. After an USB transfer is complete the USB frame length will get updated to the actual transferred length.

libusb20_tr_set_length sets the length of the given USB frame by index.

libusb20_tr_set_priv_sc0 sets private driver pointer number zero.

libusb20_tr_set_priv_sc1 sets private driver pointer number one.

libusb20_tr_set_timeout sets the timeout for the given USB transfer. A timeout value of zero means no timeout. The timeout is given in milliseconds.

libusb20_tr_set_total_frames sets the total number of frames that should be executed when the USB transfer is submitted. The total number of USB frames must be less than the maximum number of USB frames associated with the given USB transfer.

libusb20_tr_setup_bulk is a helper function for setting up a single frame USB BULK transfer.

libusb20_tr_setup_control is a helper function for setting up a single or dual frame USB CONTROL transfer depending on the control transfer length.

libusb20_tr_setup_intr is a helper function for setting up a single frame USB INTERRUPT transfer.

libusb20_tr_setup_isoc is a helper function for setting up a multi frame USB ISOCHRONOUS transfer.

libusb20_tr_bulk_intr_sync will perform a synchronous BULK or INTERRUPT transfer having length given by the length argument and buffer pointer given by the pbuf argument on the USB transfer given by the xfer argument. If the pactlen argument is non-NULL the actual transfer length will be stored at the given pointer destination. If the timeout argument is non-zero the transfer will timeout after the given value in milliseconds. This function does not change the transfer flags, like short packet not ok. This function returns zero on success else a LIBUSB20_TRANSFER_XXX value is returned.

libusb20_tr_start will get the USB transfer started, if not already started. This function will not get the transfer queued in hardware. This function is non-blocking.

libusb20_tr_stop will get the USB transfer stopped, if not already stopped. This function is non-blocking, which means that the actual stop can happen after the return of this function.

libusb20_tr_submit will get the USB transfer queued in hardware.

libusb20_tr_get_priv_sc0 returns private driver pointer number zero associated with an USB transfer.

libusb20_tr_get_priv_sc1 returns private driver pointer number one associated with an USB transfer.

Typically there should not be more than 16 levels, due to electrical and protocol limitations. This functions returns the number of actual port levels upon success else a LIBUSB20_ERROR value is returned which are always negative. If the actual number of port levels is greater than the maximum specified, a LIBUSB20_ERROR value is returned.
