The Linux-USB kernel code is complex enough to need some focused testing efforts, and this web page tries to give an overview of the key ones. Return 0 on successful submissions. The scatterlist tests can sustain peak transfer rates for some time, and all the test have modes where they can issue short writes. As of kernel 2.

It does that to ensure that more different code paths are covered, including short transfers and various different traffic patterns, but there are omissions. The USB specification says that alternate setting numbers must run from 0 to one less than the total iochronous of alternate settings.

This allows proper reference counting to happen for urbs. Assuming you have a recent Linux isochronou such as 2.

Isochronous iMX6 USB gadget example

You might want to take a look at the official USB 2. You can implement the peripheral by embedding Linux, or with some other OS.

This function sends a simple bulk message to a specified endpoint and waits for the message to complete, or timeout. Warning Avoid using this call until some usbcore bugs get fixed, since it does not fully synchronize device, interface, and driver not just usbfs state.


There are also some chapter 9 tests that your peripheral should handle; if it handles the analogous USB-IF tests from a Windows hostit should pass these with little trouble.

There isochronois two basic ways to wake up those suspended devices.

linux – Isochronous USB transfers confusion – Stack Overflow

The endpoints are part of USB interfaceswhich may have altsettings affecting things like which endpoints are available. Sign up using Email and Password. The USB standard says that interfaces are supposed to be numbered from 0 to desc. Many USB devices only have one interface.

High bandwidth USB Isochronous transfers

The peripheral can use GPL’d firmware written by Martin Diehl, instead of whatever they might normally be using. If a thread in your driver uses this call, make sure your disconnect method can wait for it to complete. Using these buffers also eliminates cacheline sharing problems on architectures where CPU caches are not DMA-coherent. You won’t notice issues with class or vendor-specific functionality with the kind of test setup described here, or with some of the less-mainstream Linux-USB APIs.

Specifically, transfers go in both directions concurrently; they use queue depths greater than one; and the rates at which requests enter and leave the queues vary considerably more. Races will show up a lot more readily!

But single isochronous IN transmission is described in various sources eg. If in doubt, try kinux an OHCI controller on your Linux host; that’s been used most often for such testing so it’s least likely to hide problems.


Use the macros provided for that purpose if you can. Isochronous URBs are normally queued, submitted by drivers to arrange that transfers linus at least double buffered, and then explicitly resubmitted in completion handlers, so that data such as audio or video streams at as constant a rate as the host controller scheduler can support.

This is especially useful when explicitly matching devices that have vendor specific bDeviceClass values, but standards-compliant interfaces. Each encapsulates a different operational environment; for example, a dual-speed device would have separate configurations for full-speed and high-speed operation.

Issues a control request to the device. Ysb is used to enable data transfers on interfaces that may not be enabled by default. On newer hardware with USB 2.

Email Required, but never shown. The differences are that it does not perform any synchronization callers should hold a private lock and handle all synchronization issues themselvesand it does not autoresume the device directly it only queues a request.

Avoid using this request. Linux can run inside USB devices as well as on the hosts that control the devices. Most other peripherals run only at full speed or sometimes low speedso they won’t need as much testing.
