How to build Bluetooth HID host using PIC24F
After much research, I ordered the RN42 module only to discover that it appears to only support the slave or device side of the Bluetooth interface. Is there a module available that contains the HCI internal to the module, so that I can easily implement the host side of the HID protocol? (I have found a couple that seem to be discontinued from sparkfun and microchip.)
My application is a super low power black box-like device (based on PIC24F) that would accept connections from an off-the-shelf Bluetooth keyboard as input either PC or MAC style. It seems building the keyboard side is easy and readily available, but are there any module solutions for the HCI/HID that can be controlled via serial similar to RN42?
Any info is much appreciated.
