Thanks, that helps.

I assume it is OK to ask how USB host is implemented on
the AVT2, since the Xburst does not support host mode.
My guess is a USB microcontroller is needed.

If that's how it is done, does it imply that two USB ports
are theoretically possible:

device USB -- Xburst
host USB     -- microcontroller.

I acknowledge that is target is to not change the plastic case,
this is not possible.
