These minimal code samples shows the inner workings of the USB controller, without all the * abstraction present in most other USB AVR stacks.

They are limited in their capabilities due to the cycles required * to be dedicated to managing the USB bus, but offer a cheap way to implement USB functionality into a design. * * - Name: AVR309: Software USB (Atmel) \n * Cost: Free \n * License: None Stated \n * Website: http://www.atmel.com/dyn/Products/app_notes.asp?family_id=607 \n * Description: Atmel's official software USB implementation, an Application Note containing work by Igor Cesko. This * is a minimal assembly-only implementation of software USB, providing HID functionality.

Uses C language code mixed with assembly for time-critical sections. */  69
