TS-4900 USB Host

From Technologic Systems Manuals

The TS-4900 provides a standard USB 2.0 host supporting 480Mb/s. Typically this is interfaced with by using standard Linux drivers, but low level USB communication is possible using libusb.

Many of our off the shelf baseboards provide a GPIO to toggle power to USB devices. This can be used to save power, or to reset USB devices that get stuck in a bad state.

# Power disabled
echo 1 > /sys/class/leds/en-usb-5v/brightness
sleep 2 # let any devices reset
# Enable power
echo 0 > /sys/class/leds/en-usb-5v/brightness
Note: The USB OTG which can act as a host does not always use the same controllable 5V supply. Refer to the schematic's EN_USB_5V/USB_5V for more information on this control.
