Alternate Device for USB embedded development
« on: June 15, 2022, 03:42:25 pm »
Hello... to work on the Jan's book 'USB Embedded Hosts' does it seem reasonable to use a RaspberryPi instead of the BeagleBoard-xM?  I do currently have a RaspBerryPi 3b with four usb ports.  And I expect there will be some internal differences to figure out as I proceed.  Thank you.

Yes, a Raspberry Pi can function as a USB host. My USB Embedded Hosts book will help you understand the host function. The Raspberry Pi community and possibly other books can help with the Pi-specific things.
