Embedded USB stacks from Logic Technology are mature, widely-used stacks that can support almost any desired USB configuration. The USB suite includes solutions not only for common functions like HID, Hub and Mass Storage but also for more sophisticated requirements including isochronous, composite devices, and interfaces to file systems and Ethernet. This means developers can exploit USB to its full capability easily, without having to worry about developing highly specialized drivers.
Logic Technology’s USB Host stack is a scalable suite. It includes a suite of host class drivers that enables an embedded host to control a variety of USB devices including pen-drives, printers, audio devices, joysticks, virtual serial ports and network interfaces. The embedded USB host stack supports EHCI, OHCI, and non-standard USB host controllers.
Logic Technology’s USB device stack allows developers to integrate USB device functionality into their embedded devices. It includes a suite of device class drivers that give the device many functional possibilities, including operating as a pen-drive, virtual serial port, joystick, audio system or a network card. HCC provides USB device controllers for many different microcontrollers.

Each class driver has specific features but the common features are:
- Designed for integration with both RTOS and non-RTOS based systems.
- Interface speeds include Low (1.5Mbs), Full (12Mbs), and High Speed (480Mbps).
- Transfer types include Control, Interrupt, Bulk, and Isochronous.
- Supports multiple devices connected simultaneously.
- Uses a system of callbacks for user-specified events.
