  1. Review by Philip - Great first step to USB HID interfacing verified purchaser

    USB is a complicated thing to understand. This module takes away all that complexity and just outputs the raw data sent from the HID device.

    What needs to be mentioned in the description is the requirement of a Microchip PIC programmer so you can change the firmware in the main IC. Two different firmware hex files needed, one for HID mouse/keyboard and the other for mass storage. (Posted on 7/02/2014)
