Bluetooth USB Hub

Postby L.Peter » Thu Jan 05, 2006 11:04 pm

Hi,

Can a USB PicoScope device be used through a Bluetooth USB hub?
Furthermore, would it be feasible to use the ADC-212 with the USB to
Parallel Converter through a Bluetooth hub?

Thanks,
Peter

Hello Peter,

In theory this is possible. The scope will require a power source via USB for USB scopes or 12v PSU for a parallel scope. The Bluetooth hub must connect to USB at both ends with the wireless jump in the middle.

We have had no reports of this yet and would be interested to hear from anyone who has tried this.

Best regards,
Michael

ADC212->USB->Bluetooth

Postby BZS » Sat Jul 08, 2006 5:33 am

Hi Michael,
With regards to your previous reply, I would like to make it clear.
My intention is to hook a ready made BT adapter to to Picotech ADC212+USB combo.
1. Can the power for the USB be drawn only from the parallel port?
2. The BT dongle has all the necessary software. Will the parallel to USB act in a dumb manner?
Thanks,
Ben

Hello,

Our parallel port products require direct access to the parallel port. ECP and EPP methods are not compatible. This is why we have developed the Pico USB to Parallel port adapter. This adapter alows us to access all communication lines in the parallel port and drive the our products via USB.

Standard USB-Parallel adapters are not compatible. This is why I do not believe a Bluetooth adapter will work. I also think the data transfer rate may be too slow with the Bluetooth protocol.

If anyone has had any experience with this, please post your replies.

Best regards,
Michael
