以一转换器侦测并转换非通用串行总线装置的方法及系统 Detecting a converter and converted to a non-USB device to a method and system

技术领域 FIELD

本发明涉及一种以一转换器侦测非通用串行总线装置的方法及搭配该转换器的外围设备系统,特别是关于一种借助一转换器将外围设备的非通用串行总线传输接口转换为通用串行总线传输接口的方法及系统。 The present invention relates to a method for detecting a non-converter and a USB device with a peripheral device of the converter system, more particularly to a converter by means of a non-USB transmission interface conversion peripheral device method and system for the USB transmission interface.

背景技术 Background technique

计算机技术随着时代的演进,具备的功能越来越强大,而已不是早期单纯用来当作是资料输入的工具,其所具备的最大特点之一即是所拥有的扩充性,可依使用者的需求作不同层面的扩充,使计算机具备更多样化的功能,其主要是利用计算机的I/O端口与外围设备作连接,而该外围设备的种类包括有键盘、鼠标、打印机、扫描仪、调制解调器、游戏杆或其它的外围设备,而该I/O端口接口种类包括有PS/2接口、RS-232接口、IDE接口、SCSI接口或其它的连接接口规格,故当使用者新增一外围设备连接至计算机使用时,必须安装适当的驱动程序并作一些软件设置,才可正常使用该外围设备,使该计算机能识别该外围设备,并能执行外围设备所拥有的功能。 With the evolution of computer technology era, have become more powerful, it is not used as a tool for early simple data entry, it has one of the most important feature that is owned by the scalability, designed for users the demand for different levels of expansion, causing a computer to have a more diverse functions, which is mainly I / O port for connecting the peripheral device using the computer, the type of the peripheral device comprises a keyboard, mouse, printer, scanner, , modem, joystick, or other peripheral devices, and the I / O port interface type comprises a PS / 2 interface, RS-232 interface, IDE interfaces, SCSI interfaces or other connection interface specification, so that when a new user when a peripheral device connected to a computer, must be installed the appropriate driver software and make some settings, before normal use of the peripheral device, so that the computer can recognize the peripheral device, the peripheral device and perform the functions owned.

但是,由上述情况可知,计算机的I/O接口规格多,彼此间又不兼容,且当许多的外围设备连接于计算机时,将使得各种规格的连接线更显得繁杂凌乱;为了统一计算机的I/O接口连接规格,于是制定出一种通用串行总线(Universal Serial Bus:USB),其具备的最大特色即为即插即用(Plug and Play;PnP)的功能,省去使用者自行安装外围设备的驱动程序及作一些软件设定的麻烦手续,并且不必重新启动计算机即可立即使用,即所谓的热插拔(hotplugging)功能,使得USB接口逐渐取代传统的连接接口。 However, as seen from the above, the computer I / O interface specifications, and not compatible with each other, and when a number of peripheral devices connected to the computer, so that a variety of cable has become more complex clutter; the computer in order to unify I / O interface specification, so to develop a universal serial bus (universal serial bus: USB), comprising the most prominent feature is the Plug and Play (Plug and Play; PnP) function, eliminating the need for the users themselves mounting the peripheral device drivers and software for a number of cumbersome setting procedure, and without restarting the computer can be used immediately, i.e., a so-called hot plug (hotplugging) function, so that the USB interface gradually replacing the traditional connection interface.

只是,由于目前使用的计算机外围设备仍然有许多是属于非USB接口,而无法安装使用于计算机中的USB接口规格,为了使非USB接口的外围设备可使用USB接口与计算机连接,可通过一个转换器,将原有的非USB接口转换为计算机可接受的USB接口,并连接至计算机使用,不过现有的转换器(无内建USB微控制器)无法读取外围设备的能力报告,且外围设备也不具有传送能力报告至计算机端,使得外围设备在接上转换器后只能具备有基本的操作功能,若有其它附加的额外功能则无法使用,如外围设备为键盘时,且该键盘设有热键的额外功能,当键盘通过上述转换器连接时,键盘只能具备有一般按键的按压功能,至于热键则无法正常使用,由于连接器无法得知键盘设有热键的功能,故计算机只能将该键盘当成一般键盘使用。 But, due to the current computer peripherals still using many of which are part of the non-USB interface, and can not be installed for use in a computer's USB interface specification, in order to make non-USB peripheral interface USB interface with a computer you can use the connection, via a conversion device, the original non-USB interface to a USB interface acceptable computer, and is connected to the computer, but the conventional converter (not built-in USB microcontroller) can not read the peripheral device capability report, and the peripheral nor has a transmitting apparatus capability report to the computer terminal, after connecting the peripheral device such that the converter is provided only with basic functions of the operation, if other additional features can not be used extra, peripheral devices such as a keyboard, and the keyboard with additional hot key function, when the transducer is connected via a keyboard, the keyboard comprising only have a general function key is pressed, as the hotkey will not work properly, since the connector can not know the keyboard hotkey function is provided, therefore, only the computer keyboard as a general keyboard.

由上可知,上述现有的转换器与外围设备的操作搭配使用时,转换器无法读取外围设备的能力报告,且外围设备也无法传送能力报告,使外围设备在借助转换器与计算机连接时,并无法完全发挥出外围设备所应有的全部功能,在实际使用上,显然具有不便与缺陷存在,而可待加以改善。 From the above, when the conventional converter with the operation of the peripheral device with the use of the converter peripheral device can not read capability report, and the peripheral device can not transmit capability report, so that the peripheral device is connected with a computer via the converter and can not fully use all functions of peripheral devices should have, in actual use, obviously has problems and disadvantages exist, and can be be improved.
