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 ( 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 . 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?

I don't believe anyone has. I'd expect that to fall to Christian, as the PID could then be set during production. At the same time, it doesn't sound like something Christian would do on his own.

I suggest you email him and see if he would be willing to set the PID if you reserve one.
