Chris from pyroelectro have just uploaded a video demonstrating his latest PIC project. I was very excited to see such a project from him, as i know that he will have an awesome and detailed documentation. This time, he used a PIC18F4455 to make a HID (Human Interface Device) to connect to his laptop. Recently, i began gathering info about USB devices, and i was rather confused. I plan to make some USB-related pages myself, and this project was like heaven from sky. This is how Chris describes this project:
This tutorial should build a USB interface using a PIC18F4455 that shows up as an HID - Human Interface Device in Windows. The interface should be able to send and receive commands from the USB Host on the Laptop computer. Specifically: The USB should be able to toggle some LEDs on and off, recognize when a switch is pressed and visualize the value of a variable resistor, trimpot
Although i haven't read the documentation yet, i'm sure it will be wild!
