Hooking up a keyboard, mouse, and display
Now that your board works, you're going to add peripherals so that it can operate as a standalone computer system. This step is optional, as in future, your projects will often be in systems where you won't connect directly to the board with a keyboard, mouse, and display. However, this can be a great learning step, and is especially useful if you need to do some debugging on the system.
You'll need the following peripherals:
- A USB mouse
- A USB keyboard (this can be wireless and can contain a built-in mouse pad)
- A display that accepts HDMI, DVI Video, or SVideo inputs
- A powered USB hub (this is optional for this instance, but you most certainly will need it for future projects)
You may have most of this stuff ...
