Pokitto granted official USB VID & PID numbers


#1

Hehey!

Just got word from NXP.

Pokitto now has official USB vid & pid numbers

More soon!


#2

So what were the numbers being used before?
Generic NXP board numbers?

Come to think of it, why would the numbers be needed?
For selecting the correct device driver?


#3

Maybe to find related drivers faster, too?

two good questions, the first I would only guess as I haven’t ever even thought of checking, but I would assume perhaps just generic hobby HID numbers. Using properly registered numbers, I would assume would allow OS’s to correctly ID the devices. I here MacOS has trouble with generic devices. Also, it would (legally?) prevent other devices using the same ID’s, preventing driver mix-ups etc.
