6.1. USB drivers

The USB boards are identified by an identification called USB ID.

The lsusb command allows identifying the USB IDs:

$ lsusb
...
Bus 001 Device 015: ID 046d:082d Logitech, Inc. HD Pro Webcam C920
Bus 001 Device 074: ID 2040:b131 Hauppauge
Bus 001 Device 075: ID 2013:024f PCTV Systems nanoStick T2 290e
...

Newer camera devices use a standard way to expose themselves as such, via USB Video Class. Those cameras are automatically supported by the uvc-driver.

Older cameras and TV USB devices uses USB Vendor Classes: each vendor defines its own way to access the device. This section contains card lists for such vendor-class devices.

While this is not as common as on PCI, sometimes the same USB ID is used by different products. So, several media drivers allow passing a card= parameter, in order to setup a card number that would match the correct settings for an specific product type.

The current supported USB cards (not including staging drivers) are listed below1.

some of the drivers have sub-drivers, not shown at this table. In particular, gspca driver has lots of sub-drivers, for cameras not supported by the USB Video Class (UVC) driver, as shown at gspca card list.
