An ordinary Bluetooth adapter. You can easily add different Bluetooth services, such as a PS3 or Wii controller or SPP which is supported through Bluetooth virtual serial port. A number of different examples can be found in the examples directory.
Connect USB peripherals. Such as a mouse, handle etc.
Connect HID devices via Bluetooth, currently supports HID mouse and keyboard.
Allow you send data to your Microduino from PM/mobile phone via Bluetooth.
Allow you to use the Sony PS4 controller via Bluetooth and USB.
Use DUALSHOCK3, navigation or motion controller via Bluetooth and USB.
- Xbox Libraries:
- Xbox Libraries:
The library uses USB as the Xbox 360 controller.
Light a LED via a mobile using the ADK example library:
- Prepared hardware: Microduino FT232R, Microduino Core, Microduino USBHOST, OTG cable, make sure your Android device supports and turn on the USB debug mode, USB cable;
- Prepared software: USB_Host_Shield_2.0 library, Arduino IDE(1.0 release and upper);
- Uncompress the zip folder and rename to "USB_Host_Shield" because Arduino IDE doesn't support any special characters, then copy to libraries folder of Arduino IDE;
- Connect the Microduino FT232R and PC using USB cable to download program and serial monitor;
- Connect a LED to I/O port D6 of Microduino-Core.
- Open the example program "ArduinoBlinkLED" from ADK folder of examples;
- Change LED_BUILTIN to Microduino pin in "#define LED LED_BUILTIN", such as "#define LED 6". But can't be D13, because D13 is used as SCK;
- After compiled, select the board "Microduino Core (Atmega328P@16M,5V)", download directly;
- Connect the mobile phone and Microduino USBHOST by OTG cable and USB cable;
- Open the serial monitor, will display "Arduino Blink LED Started";
- The phone will automatically pop up the application "ArduinoBlinkLED", download and install it;
- After installed the application, will prompt to open the USB connection fittings, and click OK to enter the program interface;
- Successful connection will show "connected", and can control the LED light on and off via the button.
