How to connect a USB keyboard to the wixel


Does anyone knows if with the libraries provied by Pololu is possible to connect a USB keyboard to the wixel and read keytrokes from it. Directly with no computer involved.


No, it is not possible

so i can’t use the wixel or CC2532 as a USB host ?

Certainly not with the Pololu library code. Why not take a look at the documentation?

Hello. Jim is right. The CC2511 does not have the hardware necessary to act as a USB host, so it cannot talk to USB devices such as your keyboard. If you got some board that acts as a USB Host, like a Raspberry Pi, you could receive signals from the keyboard and send them to the Wixel.


Thank you, i’ll take a look at the spec to fid out if it is even possible.
