Description: Project goal: To create a new USB point-of-sale hub that interfaces with existing peripherals and an iPad through a microprocessor. The peripherals consist of a card reader, scanner, display, printer and cash drawer. The system translates the data collected from the scanner or card reader and displays it on the iPad. The system also takes data from the iPad and outputs it to a display or printer. The entire system meets the requirements of Apple’s Made for iPhone/iPod/iPad licensing program, and the app serves as an iOS demonstration program for the testing of the four peripherals.
