I am interested in having a cpu communticate with a "smart" power supply controller, or controllers. I am interested in using USB for interconnections between host and "device" rather than use boards communicate using ISA bus, or even PCI bus--using the PC104 format. This would drastically reduce the number of I/O connections to the FPGA on the "device" which must communicate with the host. I need to know if the protocol is simpiler to implement that the alternative protocols. I don't know the USB protocol AT ALL. So, would I gain anything using USB bus rather than ISA? What is required in the "device" to communicate over USB? Can I implement the protocol without the need for a CPU in my controller's FPGA? This question is particularly of interest to me. I imagine the host (PC104 CPU) has plenty of software support already to communicate, but what do I need in my smart controller ("device") to communicate over USB?
The company says it anticipates high-definition video for home security and other uses will be the next mature technology integrated into the IoT domain, hence the introduction of its MatrixCam devkit.
