Hello community,

I'm new here and also inexperienced by working with Post, yet.

The problem I have at the moment, is the communication with an USB-device, in my case a barcode scanner. To keep the explanation short:

I want to store/save the scanned barcode (as a string). Due to that I bought a scanner and want to receive the code with the Psoc. The Scanner is using USB.

Now my question/problem:

As I know the USB-device needs a host to be able to communicate. I read that the Psoc itself can't function as a host and therefore it is not possible realize the whole concept as I thought/planed... (Am I right with that?)

Does someone could help me or has an idea how I could solve this problem. Maybe with a converter or something like that?!

Thanks a lot!

Daniel

Daniel, the sad news is: PSoC5 does not work as an USB host, only as a slave just like your scanner.

First, thank you for your answer.

Is there an other possibility to realize it. Maybe with a converter chip to an other bus system?
