Add another USB Client Connector


#1

Hello,

I’m using a FEZ Domino and i’m wondering if it’s possible to add another USB Client Connector.
What I want to do is send keystrokes to 2 computers at the same time.

Thanks

Nope, Sorry.

If you are talking about USB host, you can use a USB hub, however.

You can’t just add another connector. The CPU only has hardware for one client connector.

What you can do is add a PIC18 with USB capabilities, connected to the FEZ for the other connector.

This will require a bit of ansi C coding and debugging hardware for PIC18 etc though.

2xFEZes = 2xUSB clients :wink:

Or use a FTDI USB<->serial chip, you can use a UART on the FEZ to talk to the FTDI and ‘Bobs you uncle’.
