Vampire-compatible USB input devices

This page contains a list of USB input devices (mice, keyboards, game controllers, etc.) that are known to be working well on Vampire boards that have a USB port.

Compatibility concerns

  • Mice and keyboards: To initialize a USB mouse or keyboard, the Vampire uses the “boot protocol”. This is the same protocol that was used by PC BIOS USB stacks before UEFI became widespread. Nowadays, with UEFI USB stacks available on most PCs, the old “boot protocol” is no longer necessary, so some manufacturers simply omit this protocol from their devices. But notably, if a USB mouse or keyboard does not support the “boot protocol”, it will not work on the Vampire. If you really need to use such a device, it can be made to work with the help of this HID wrapper (do-it-yourself).
  • Game controllers: For communicating with USB game controllers, there is no standard protocol. Every manufacturer's protocol can be different. The Vampire has support for the most common protocols, covering a substantial number of game controllers.

Partly-compatible mice

If a mouse's electrical components are built to wake up “too quickly”, the Vampire will not have time to initialize it when powering on. You will need to plug in the mouse after turning on the Vampire and allowing some time for its electronics to wake up. Mice that are suffering from this problem are listed below. This late plug-in requirement can be circumvented with the help of this HID wrapper (do-it-yourself).
