I am planning to create a solution wherein 4 external devices need to be connected to an iPad.
These devices will be accessed programmatically. Challenge is iPad has only 1 30 pin connector slot, I was planning to use a USB splitter attached to iPad via USB converter marketed by Apple.
The devices could be:
1. Small Folio printer
2. Credit Card Swipe I/F
3. Bar Code Reader
4. Room Key Card Encoder
Is this technically possible, do we have to interface with Hardware Vendors and so on ?
Seems to be challenging embedded system application.
