Spiro, I had ordered 2 samples of this part as well as 2 VBUS controllers from Maxim last year. I have not had a chance to use them yet, but read the documentation pretty thuroughly. My application was to interface USB flash drives with a uC. I stumbled on the vinculum series of products by FTDI. They have firmware on their page for mass storage driver and FAT16/32 filesystem access. This essentially makes the vinculum chip a file-server which can handle 2 files open at the same time. They are $12 US in single quantities from their web shop. I have 2 on hand, but again haven't done much with them yet. If your application is similar, I would recommend checking it out. http://www.vinculum.com/ Scott McDonnell -----Original Message----- From: email@example.com [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] On Behalf Of Spiro Trikaliotis Sent: Friday, February 02, 2007 1:03 PM To: cbm-hackers mailing list Subject: MAX3420E/MAX3421E USB chips Hello, does anyone here have any info about the MAX3420E and/or MAX3421E USB chips by Maxim? Did anyone ever use one of them? The MAX3420E is an USB Device: MAX3420E: http://www.maxim-ic.com/quick_view2.cfm/qv_pk/4751 The MAX3421E is an extension of the 3420. It can be used as a USB controller, too: MAX3421E: http://www.maxim-ic.com/quick_view2.cfm/qv_pk/3639 What about prices, availability? Maxim lists < $4 per 1.000 for the MAX3421E. What are end-user prices in smaller quantities? Regards, Spiro. -- Spiro R.
