The USB Host Shield Mini from Circuits@Home, is a compact version of the well known USB Host Shield that we have been using for a lot of our USB Host development
on the Arduino.
The mini version makes it possible to add the USB Host functionality to Arduino Pro Mini projects by stacking the board on top of the Arduino. And the board is of course compatible to the USB Host library that we have added a lot of features to, such as PS3 and PS4 controlling.
This shield only work with Arduino Pro Mini boards, running at 3.3V-only.
Due to the small form factor and pinout, the board can also be used as a MAX3421E USB Host breakout board.
This shield is shipped without headers by deafult. In the dropdown list below you can decide to get the board shipped with pre-cut matching headers.
