New Product Ideas / Tiny ribbon connectors to allow different layouts
« on: April 11, 2013, 01:31:23 PM »
I love tiny.  I love plug and play connections.  I don't always want to create a stack.

Sometimes I want to create a panel (boards next to each other) so that I can keep the thin profile.  Other times I want to put one board over here, and one board over there because I'm mounting them in a really small space.

I could do that with the lili's but then I have to rely on my soldering skillz (scary!) - but with a mini ribbon cable with connectors on both ends I could achieve my packaging nirvana with the TD and be sure of good electrical and mechanical connections.


Practically all of the Bluetooth add-ons come with the serial port profile (SPP), some specialized ones come with the A2DP (audio) profile.

However, what I think would be great would be implementing the HID (Humane Interface Device) profile.  This would give us the ability to interface with a lot more consumer devices "out of the box" by utilizing their pre-existing HID implementations.  e.g. you could have your TD (tiny duino) talk to your smartphone (smartphones implement HID but don't, in general, implement SPP).

I don't know if such a BT chipset exists - but something with a bunch of selectable profiles would, of course, be even cooler (but I don't know if it's possible)

p.s. I want to make a small chording keyboard for use with my smartphone.

p.p.s. received my TD stuff earlier this week :-)   haven't had chance to play with it yet :-(
