Topic: what boards are detected as HID on pc (Read 636 times) previous topic - next topic


I want to create anew device that can be detected automatically as a keyboard or mouse .
I understand that one of the boards with this functionality is Leonardo ,.
The questions are there any other Arduino boards that have this functionality , and if there are any smaller ones the the Leonardo   ?

Thanks .


There are clones which are smaller, the best none clone imho is from freetronics, thumb size complete with speaker and rgb it's ready to go and controls keyboard and mouse.


I used it at tafe to login my username and password automatically, I'll use nfc next time


Thank you for your response .

Any one used the Leonardo pro micro(mini version )  ? , does it have same functionality as the leonardo ?

As best I know, the micro is functionally identical to the Leonardo.

Mind you I am having some trouble with getting a couple of clones to work, haven't figured that out yet.


The due has HID as well and the yun (which is a leonardo+ a linux running openwrt).
have you looked at the teensy? There are couple of them and they all have HID?
The teensy3.1 (say due ++ in a small package) is currently on sale for 17$ http://store.oshpark.com/products/teensy-3-1

Read about the Teensy , wasn't sure it had the HID functionality .

they are supposed to have HID , ill update here , they are supposed to be Micro clones .

Thank you for the info , very much appreciated.
