JVonHatten; I do not think so. USB data packets are sent in fixed sizes, say 64 bytes
How do you know when the end of the application packet is received? This is what I understand but have no confirmation. If you get a packet that is less than 64 bytes, end of sequence. If it is 64 bytes, there is more to come. If the application packet is 64*N where N is an integer, one will receive a 0-byte packet.
This is true for Control packets. How about the data transfers?
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
