Has anyone requested a custom PID value for the Hexbright?
The CP2102 USB<->UART bridge is shipped with the factory PID:VID pair. I would like to write a custom UDEV rule when a Hexbright is plugged into the socket, which differs from other devices with a CP2102 inside.
Silicon Laboratories seem to offer an option to request a unique PID for products with an CP2102 inside (i.e. you don't have to go the hard way through the USB Implementers Forum).
The Device Customization Guide (http://www.silabs.com/support%20document...) says:
If you do not wish to license the USB-IF logo for your
product, you can use the default Silicon Laboratories VID
along with a unique PID. To obtain a unique PID for your CP210x/CP211x-based product, visit http://www.silabs.com/RequestPID . Having a unique PID reduces the chances that another device with the same VID, PID, and Serial Number will appear on the same USB bus.
I wonder if anybody has had the same idea, and who should actually request the custom PID for the Hexbright?
Is this a good question?
