Live connection to Arduboy


Anyway to make live connection from PC to Arduboy via USB-cable.

So you fx can use the Arduboy as display of speedometer or current gear or some other telemetry when drivning racing games on PC?

By default, the Arduboy appears as a USB serial device to a PC or other USB host. You can use the Arduino Serial functions to send and receive data. (The Arduboy is equivalent to a Leonardo).

You can also have the Arduboy appear as a PC keyboard, mouse, or game controller. In theory, the Arduboy could act as almost any type of USB client device.

Thanx for the quick response :smile:

Yes, via Serial

If you only need Windows support and are happy with C# or C++ code then I maybe be able to provide you with some examples.

Anything relating to the device change event is Windows specific because it relies on “Windows Management Instrumentation”, but anything relating to SerialPort should be cross platform.

thanx :smiley:
