Re: query on DWC3

Hi Paul,

As per my understanding, for BULK OUT we do queue a request with 512
bytes length since we do not
know the length of the transfer Host is going to send. For Control OUT
we know the length in wLength of
Setup packet, hence I assumed there is no difference in programming
model of Control IN and OUT.
Now it is clear for me. Thanks for the clarification :)
