Hello,
Is the 6 threads limit on the USB tile still required on the xCORE200 family?
Thx

Not any more - you can give a thread a guaranteed 1/5 of the 500MHz now with XS2.

See page 6 of https://www.xmos.com/download/private/A ... rc1%29.pdf

if you use all 8, the remaining minimum 57MHz (400 / 7) per thread is fine for the other tasks in USB audio.
