I have some questions regarding USB support on wince platforms.
1. Where can i find documentation on USB support for wince.
2. Can i connect usb devices to a wince handheld and expose them as USB
instead of com ports.
Answer 2: Your question is very vague, but I will try. If your WinCE
device has a USB Host port, then you can connect other USB devices to it.
PB ships with a sample human interface device(HID) driver which supports
keyboard, mouse and joystick. For other USB clients you, or a third party,
will need to supply the drivers.
On the other hand, you want to take the cable that connects a PDA to a PC
and attach some client device to it instead of the PC, then NO you cannot do

1) Microsoft Windows CE.NET help, "Supported and Unsupported USB features".
"Complex power saving modes or partial-power modes is not supported for USB
devices when the device is suspended. Instead, the entire bus is shut down.
Consequently, there is no support for resuming from suspension in response
to the needs of a USB device. Also, the remote wakeup feature as described
in the Universal Serial Bus Specification, Revision 1 is not supported."
In NEXiO(Sasmsung's PDA using WinCE 3.0 OS with USB host controller), I want
to sleep my USB device(for example, TI's 4 port USB hub) while NEXiO is
running. Is it possible?
