Note: USB Host Shield for Arduino is discontinued now.
USB Host Shield is an add-on board for Arduino development platform. The shield provides USB Host interface, allowing full and low-speed communication with USB devices – keyboards, mice, joysticks, MIDI, digital cameras, Bluetooth, and many others.
Thanks to the new interface layout it is now compatible with more Arduinos – not only UNO and Duemilanove, but also big Mega and Mega 2560 work with Standard variant of this shield out of the box.
No more SPI re-wiring and code modifications – just solder included stackable connectors (2×3 ICSP connector’s female side should be facing down), plug and play!
Version 2.0 is now supporting Google ADK.
This shield is derived from circut@home.
