usb_host.set_user_keymap(keymap: circuitpython_typing.ReadableBuffer, /) None

Set the keymap used by a USB HID keyboard in kernel mode

The keymap consists of 256 or 384 1-byte entries that map from USB keycodes to ASCII codes. The first 128 entries are for unmodified keys, the next 128 entries are for shifted keys,and the next optional 128 entries are for altgr-modified keys.

The values must all be ASCII (32 through 126 inclusive); other values are not valid.

The values at index 0, 128, and 256 (if the keymap has 384 entries) must be 0; other values are reserved for future expansion to indicate alternate keymap formats.

At other indices, the value 0 is used to indicate that the normal definition is still used. For instance, the entry for HID_KEY_ARROW_UP (0x52) is usually 0 so that the default behavior of sending an escape code is preserved.

This function is a CircuitPython extension not present in PyUSB

class usb_host.Port(dp: microcontroller.Pin, dm: microcontroller.Pin)

USB host port. Also known as a root hub port.

Create a USB host port on the given pins. Access attached devices through the usb module.

The resulting object lives longer than the CircuitPython VM so that USB devices such as keyboards can continue to be used. Subsequent calls to this constructor will return the same object and not reinitialize the USB host port. It will raise an exception when given different arguments from the first successful call.

  • dp (Pin) – The data plus pin

  • dm (Pin) – The data minus pin
