USB Product ID

Price: EUR 14.95

When you develop your own USB product you probably do not want to pay 2000$ for a Vendor ID.
Why would you need a VID ? Each USB product requires an unique VID and PID number.
Since the VID is a WORD(2 bytes) there are many possible numbers.

Each of your unique products need a unique PID. This is also a WORD(2 bytes).

Another option is to buy a PID from MCS. Together with the VID you will have a unique combination.
MCS has sold PID's since 2005.
When MCS purchased the VID, there was NO INFORMATION about the usage of the VID-PID.
USB-IF was only focused to get a payment. There were no rules or conditions or a contract.

That changed in June 2009 when USB-ORG wrote an email that it was not permitted to sell VID or PID.
MCS pointed out that in The Netherlands you can not enforce or change rules AFTER a product/service is sold.
So we continued as usual.
In reaction USB-ORG offered our money back but that would mean existing customers would not have a valid PID anymore.
So we got some more letters and finally USB-ORG wrote a letter that they revoked our VID.

Of course our VID can not be re-used by USB-ORG. This means that our VID will still be unique.

If you want to produce a USB device that need to be tested/verified by USB-ORG you need your own VID.
If you only need a real unique VID & PID combination, you can still use ours.
So what we offer is a unique VID & PID combination.

FIRST Rate product. Keep up the good work. $2000.00 for a vendor ID is outrageous. So please keep selling your VID and PID and we will still keep buying them.

Keep selling and Keep fighting! is ridiculous, nobody is going to fork over 2 grand for a VID, if they are only going to use 1 PID.

I completely agree. It is outrageous to want to change the rules of use of a product after the sale.
