Nehebkau: Laptop controlled keyboard and mouse emulator

Posted on Friday, July 13th, 2012 in project logs by DP

Frank designed, and built a Laptop controlled keyboard, and mouse emulator for his Raspberry Pi. It is designed around two microcontroller with USB device capability.

One is connected to a Laptop, from which it receives it’s mouse and keyboard data, while the other is connected to the Raspberry Pi to which it emulates a mouse, and keyboard, parsing the data received from the laptop connected uC.

    Why two HUGE micro’s for such a simple task?

    V-USB runs between 1.2KB – 2.2KB max. So a (attiny-25) ‘per side’ should be plenty for a simple USB USB translator. (attiny45) has 4k if more memory is need and if one could somehow include a double V-USB stack :p

    BoM would be much much lower I reccon. Especially when buying bigger quantities chips.

      I wanted a chip that supported bootloading while being small. I don’t think any of the ATtiny series supports bootloading.

      I consider myself already extremely familiar with V-USB already, I wanted to play with LUFA.

      V-USB will become obsolete soon because of the emergence of the Leonardo. Think of V-USB and Teensy like Windows Mobile 6, which wasn’t bad at all. and then think of all the Arduino’s as a different iPhone. It’s all about the brand.

      This project was never about optimizing anything at all, just for fun, more code space, the better

    Now to get a cheap VGA USB input to repair servers that do not have a management card.
