Flash Arduino as HID device

Post by krono » 22 Nov 2016, 04:57

Hi

I have been looking at the arduino mega for a while. If I flash an Arduino to a HID device keyboard with HoodLoader do you think Spad.next would then be able to see it to use as a bip type controller.
I will probably try this in the next couple of days to see how it goes. I know I could clone it as a LedWiz doing the same thing.

SPAD.neXt will see it as what it is announced by the HID-Driver.

Currently Led-Feedback is not implemented there as I do not have any device that supports that.
As soon as i get my Arduino test equipment I'll look into that in the cold dark winter days.

Ok thats no worries I am thinking of flashing to a compatible board that you already do. Its a round about way but should work albiet a bit fiddly to set up.

Hi

Just for an update...
I am keeping the arduino as is rather than flashing it and have ordered an Ultimarc PacLed64 WHOOt.....WHOOt.
I am looking forward to making this unit in conjunction with a Derek Speares board for a BIP and switch panel combined.
