  • HSIC is intended to be transparent to the software. Therefore existing Microsoft USB stacks should run on HSIC as they do on regular USB. Having said that, there are certain restrictions with HSIC (such as lack of support for disconnect/connect of devices) that will might limit the configurations in which HSIC can be used. Microsoft USB stacks do not account for any special HSIC behavior.
