USB on LPC2378

Started by karelvergauwe February 11, 2008
On the LPC2378 there are 2 USB ports, wich are multiplexed. What does
this mean?
1) Only one of the 2 ports can be used, just for easer pin assignement
2) 2 fully separated USB ports can be made
3) both ports can be used as 1 USB port without the need for a hub

I think it is the first one, but I'm not sure.

If I would like to use USB for just HID or MSD (decision made from the
beginning), then would I ever need the SoftConnect tool?

Are the LED for GoodLink and SoftConnect then still interesting?

It's because I need some extra pin's and I'm running out of them.
