With the world in lockdown, you’d think there’s plenty of time for hobbies. Somehow, it’s been 4 months since my last post – time flies in a crisis! I’ll admit that I’ve been somewhat lax in working on the CPC2, but with the project so close to completion, I need to re-commit to finishing this 5-year project! Today’s post is about my CPC Bluetooth joystick!
Retro CPC Dongle – Part 28
As promised in Part 27, I’ve finished a new build of the CPC2 hardware. Here are the board layouts as rendered by OshPark , and if you’re interested, I’ve shared the project.
ESP32 Bluetooth: Using the BTstack library
Mad props to antepher and his awesome techtutorialsx blog. Just when I’d given up hope that the ESP32 would resolve my Bluetooth woes, he points out that BTStack is a pretty capable stack for embedded and has a port for the ESP32 already! I’m eternally grateful…thank you! More to come, but I may be able to get the ESP32+BTStack to connect to my Bluetooth HID devices for CPC2…
The objective of this ESP32 tutorial is to explain how to get started with the Bluetooth functionalities that are supported by the ESP32 hardware. The Bluetooth tests of this tutorial were performed using a DFRobot’s ESP-WROOM-32 module, integrated in a ESP32 FireBeetle board.
