Use ESP32 to connect bluetooth peripherals to the PC

Postby carlymx » Mon Mar 11, 2019 10:52 pm

Hi all.
I just bought a bluetooth headset and I realized that they do not have a USB dongle to connect it to the PC. Mobile and portable with integrated Bluetooth work perfectly. But to the PC I need a Bluetooth Dongle and I have thought if the ESP32 could do that function to me.

I have searched but I am somewhat clumsy and I have not been able to find what I am looking for.

Can you help me? Do you know of an example sketch or Project on GitHub that fulfills my objective?

Thank you very much in advance.

FYI, you can probably hack something up with connecting the internal HCI interface to the UART, but at that point it may be cheaper and easier to just buy an off-the-shelf USB dongle.

I actually was looking for some solution too. It turned out I would have to write my own USB-bluetooth driver under Windows or get some device with clear SDK. I haven't searched yet
