USB1 already was 12Mbps, USB2 extends to 480Mbps.

The problem is not the transmission speed but latency. With USB you just
don't have a guarantee that packets are delivered in time -- and if you do
isochronous transfer you don't have a guarantee that transmission was ok.

With one of the already mentioned PICs, an EZ-USB or similar, of course
something like a C2N-USB can be done. But the original question was if a
generic USB2PAR adapter would work.
