UART to HID Keyboard Controller CH9328


Introduction

CH9328 is a UART to HID keyboard chip that is recognized as a standard USB HID keyboard device on computers. CH9328 can only support unidirectional data transmission, it receives the data sent from the UART(such as ASCII code), then package the data into standard keyboard HID report data and upload to the computer through the USB port according to the HID class keyboard device specification. Through the provided Windows software, the user can also configure the chip’s VID, PID, and various string descriptors.

The figure below shows the diagram of its general application.
