We would like to use a smart-phone as an interface for our scientific instruments (instruments have their own power source). We already use the c++ driver library under various Linux distribution and managed to successfully compile them in the Ubuntu phone emulator as well. Now, we would like to connect our instrument to a nexus 4 with Ubuntu touch.
In order to connect our instrument with the nexus we need a USB OTG connection. For android, the OTG was disabled in 4.2.2, but enabled in 4.3. Before we proceed, we have two questions:
- Does anyone know if OTG works on the nexus 4 with Ubuntu touch/ has anyone tested it?
- Our driver libraries use the libusb library.. should we expect some problems here?
Thanks in advance.
