USB Development Survey Results Available From Embedded Market Forecasters
MCCI and Embedded Market Forecasters (EMF) are happy to announce that the results of EMF’s recent survey of USB developers are now available. With input from roughly 500 developers, this survey has the most accurate snapshot of USB development practices.

Thanks to the members of the MCCI community who contributed to the results.
In case you’re wondering, the vast majority of respondents were not MCCI users; the respondents cover the entire embedded community, not just the high-volume telecoms and high-volume consumer electronics customers that have been MCCI’s traditional base. The biggest surprise of the survey was that 40% of respondents are doing safety-related designs (as indicated by the standards with which they comply); and yet only 10% of respondents are doing USB compliance testing, which I’d consider the minimum level for testing any USB design.
