USB Low-Full-High Speed Peripherals

Anonymous

        Hi, I would like to use cypress for one of my DAQ boards to interface it to PC.   
Can you guys point me to some links where I can find getting started documents/reference designs etc.   
I have used the MAX3420E Full speed usb interface chip. I am not sure how it compares with Ez USB other than speed, like coding complexity etc.   
I used an FPGA to program/configure the MAX3420. I think cypress has a chip without the 8051, which is meant to be interfaced with FPGAs, uC etc.   
I am trying to decide between the chip without 8051 and with 8051.   
what tools do I need to program the 8051.   
Thanks for your patience.

Getting a development kit is the easiest way. Cypress sells one for around 400$. If thats not an option, I came across another company which makes USB kit for cypress -

More USB 2.0 kits -

Some getting started notes -

Basically, you need to write your code and download it to 8051. The popular tools are keil and sdcc(small device C compiler).
