USB Host Shield is now available in the webshop
This is a short announcement regarding the USB Host Shield from Circuits@Home, which we are now carrying in in our store.
By buying the official shield you will support the continous development of the library and get support from us!
The shield can be found and bought here: USB Host Shield 2.0 for Arduino.
The shield can be used with almost any kind of Arduino including the most popular Arduino Uno, Arduino Mega, Arduino Leonardo etc. If you are in doubt if your Arduino is supported please don’t hesitate to write a comment below.
The USB Host Shield will allow you to use any of the Bluetooth and USB libraries I wrote.
In case you missed it I have written several libraries for the shield including:
The Serial Port Protocol (SPP)
Emulate a serial port via Bluetooth, which allows you to send data back and fourth wirelessly.
All the official controllers are supported both via USB and Bluetooth.
The PS4 controller is supported via both USB and Bluetooth as well.
The Wiimote is supported including the build IR camera. The Motion Plus and Nunchuck extensions are also supported. The Wii U Pro Controller is supported as well.
Bluetooth HID devices
Standard Bluetooth HID devices, like mice and keyboards are also supported by the library.
The USB Host Shield support several other devices including:
- USB to serial converters – FTDI, PL-2303, ACM, as well as certain cell phones and GPS receivers are supported.
- Android ADK
- Digital cameras
- HID device, such as keyboards, mice and joysticks
