About the STD/Simtec USB card

The STD/Simtec USB card is a USB1.1 compatible USB expansion card for
RISC OS computers fitted with a backplane. It allows for connection of
USB devices such as keyboards, mice, pen drives, MP3 players, scanners,
cameras and USB wireless networking dongles.

As the STD/Simtec USB solution complies with generally accepted
programmer's interface implementations, the Simtec API is suitable for
use both within and outside the RISC OS market. As a completely "clean"
design which does not rely on any GPL or sub-licensed code, the Simtec
implementation is available for license to large customers, and in turn
development of RISC OS drivers benefits from the input from these
customers - this illustrated with the unique support for DFU code
uploading which allows non mass-storage devices such as USB-based
wireless networking devices to function. Simtec is a Philips'
recommended design house for USB products.
