AD5370 Eval - Software Development API - CYPRESS USB (EZUSB CYUSB)

I would like to be able to write my own software to interface to a EVAL-AD5370 DAC board. Does anyone know if Analog Devices has a published software document that describes how to interface to their (many) USB/EVAL devices? I know that they use the CYUSB family of USB products from CYPRESS, but I can't divine a way to get from the USB port to the output pins and make it to the SPI interface. This could really qualify as more of a general question, as Analog Devices produces has many EVAL boards that have a USB interface. One of the tougher parts about trying to do this on my own is the fact that a HEX file is downloaded to the CYPRESS part right as the AD EVAL software starts. Who knows how that changes the USB Interface? The current EVAL app look like a Visual Studio app and uses ADI_CYUSB_USB4.dll. Any insight welcome - especially from an AD Software type!

Thanks!
