Using USB keyboard with an embedded host

Keywords:USB keyboard? MCU? embedded host? application note?

MCU applications can easily support USB embedded host functionality with the introduction of Microchip's MCUs with the USB On-The-Go peripheral. Traditionally, PCs have been used as hosts in a USB network. Microchip's USB On-The-Go product line can now replace the PC in the system by implementing an embedded host.

Many embedded applications require control inputs from external devices, such as keyboards, mice, joysticks, point-of-sale barcode scanners and magnetic code readers having HID Keyboard Emulation mode. This application note demonstrates how to develop a USB keyboard application that can run on the Explorer 16 demo board with a USB PICtail Plus daughter board using a Microchip USB On-The-Go MCU as the embedded host.
