USB Host Shield is an inexpensive ( $25 for the full-sized board and $20 for the Mini variant ) development board designed to be used in embedded applications which require USB Host functionality. The board supports USB 2.0 full/low speed operation. Primary target platform is Arduino, however, it can also be used with any other micro equipped with SPI interface.

Best Arduino USB Host Shield Projects Information

This is a summary page for USB Host Shield project that I started in the spring of 2009. The initial goal of the project was to develop Arduino code supporting USB Host controller in order to communicate with USB peripherals, such as keyboards, joysticks and cameras. This goal has been achieved. The shield exists in configurations compatible with 5V and 3.3V Arduino boards. Current revision of the library (r2.0) supports MAX3421E host controllers, general USB functionality, enumeration of up to 44 devices with USB hub support, and MAX3421 GPIO pins access. The following device classes are currently supported:
