Question: What are the advantages of using Cypress CDC Driver instead of native Microsoft Driver?
The advantages of using Cypress CDC driver are
- Cypress CDC driver support flow control.
- Microsoft driver handles only Parity error where as Cypress CDC driver handles errors, such as Parity error, Overrun error and Frame error.
- Microsoft native driver was developed for old modems and can support only up to few Kbps bandwidths where as Cypress driver supports up to 3 Mbps.
- Microsoft driver does not clear the device buffer whereas Cypress CDC driver clears the device buffer by sending the purge command.
