LPC-2148 USB Isochronous Examples based on lpcusb

Today I read an interesting article from Linux Journal.

In the article, there is an interesting example of Isochrouns USB Transfer example based on lpcusb. So I use lpc21isp and download the code to my Olimex LPC-P2148 board which the developers are also using. They have also the Linux host example based on usbfs which seems to work right out of the box. Now I need to read the firmware in more detail.

There are also quite some examples from the psas site.

lpcusb (get the svn version)
