Product Description:

Great news for Arduino Nano owners!!!

Looking for project to interface with Android* phone and tablet?

This add-on module allows you to interface with USB devices using the Arduino Nano. The communication is compatible with full and low-speed USB devices – mice, keyboards, joysticks, cameras, Android* devices and more. You get all of the benefits of using the Arduino Nano. This includes breadboard friendliness for quick prototyping. It is fully assembled with long pin headers so you don’t need to purchaase and solder the headers separately. You’re ready to go out of the box! Yes, you get the same stackable benefits as the Arduino shields. Its small size of 3.7”x1.0” makes it easy to hide or fit in a small project box.

The USBHOST-4NANO contains all of the circuitries you need to implement a full and low-speed USB peripheral control using the Arduino Nano. It is based on the MAX3421E IC. This board can run any code for USB Host Shield with modification of the pin configuration. Please refer to schematic for more detail.

The reset button on the Nano resets both the MAX3421E and the Arduino Nano.
