  Quotes
"Some companies (like FTDI) have taken the approach of nearly completely relieving their customers of any USB knowledge, providing drivers and APIs for the host side, and a simple FIFO or serial interface at the device side.  This seems like a good strategy to me, as it provides a USB interface that can be implemented in a design without the engineer first having to become a USB guru."

Michael DeVault - DeVaSys on the USB Developers Web Board
 
 
 
"I have purchased a couple of DLP-245 modules to test-drive your USB chip in FPGA or ASIC context.  I was up and running within a few hours! (including the addition of the module to an Insight Xilinx Board, the drivers' installation, the FPGA application coding, and building a small USB demo project)."
 
"Everything (ASSP & drivers) seems perfectly designed on your side and I was very strongly impressed.  I have even purchased another tool using your chip (the small logic analyzer from Rocky Logic) which also works like a breeze (using the same USB drivers)."
 
"Today, I updated my website to reference your solution, and I have started to promote it heavily towards my customers and delegates who express interest in USB (during our HDL Training courses).  See http://www.alse-fr.com/English/cool_links.html."
 
"Congratulations for the perfect job!"

Bertrand Cuzeau - Technical Manager ALSE
