What are the costs we can expect when we want to resell and sign the Cypress CyUSB driver?

A USB Vendor ID seems to cost $6000: https://www.usb.org/getting-vendor-id. And there will be costs to get a Extended Validation (EV) Code Signing Certificate. But which other costs can be expected?

Regards,

Hi,

Correct. EV certificate or USB Vendor ID are maintenance cost by Microsoft and USBIF. Microsoft doesn't charge any other cost for signing the driver. Reselling is also done free of cost by Infineon. 

Best Regards

Hi,

Driver resell is done free of cost and there are no charges.

Infineon can resell the CYUSB driver with your custom VID/PID. Please refer this KBA: https://community.infineon.com/t5/Knowledge-Base-Articles/Driver-resell-and-Driver-signing-FAQs-KBA2... to get more information about the driver resell process. You need to have an account with the Microsoft Hardware Dashboard and an EV Certificate.

Best Regards

So the only costs are the USB Vendor ID and the EV Certificate, and absolute nothing else?

Kind regards
