TS-4200 USB Device

From Technologic Systems Manuals

This section will discuss the configuration and use of the Linux USB device gadgets (http://www.linux-usb.org/).

NOTE: Due to a bug, a kernel update must be performed in order to reliably enable this feature. Please contact our support team here for more information.

The USB Mass Storage Device Linux USB gadget will allow you to use your board as a storage device, like a USB thumb drive, when connected to a host PC. Subsequently, the CPU can access the saved data through the storage element named usb_storage_file.

The IP over USB (A.K.A. USB Ethernet) Linux USB gadget will allow you to connect to your board with a USB cable from a PC like you would with a CAT5 Ethernet cable. You will have access to the board via the TCP/IP connection allowing you to use any networking utility (e.g. ping, ssh, ftp, http, etc).

For Windows, a driver interface configuration file (linux.inf) will need to be downloaded and installed on the host PC. This procedure is described in detail below. The linux.inf file can be downloaded here.

The TS-4200 can only be one device at a time. It cannot be both a USB Mass Storage device AND a USB Ethernet device simultaneously. Load only ONE of these drivers.
