Duo as HCI USB CDC /w libusb?

#1

Hi,

I’m working on a project where the original developer used a BLE mini with the HCI USB CDC firmware (https://github.com/RedBearLab/BLE_HCI). The executable (Code: https://pastebin.com/SKwfQbud?fbclid=IwAR3cQEiMrNkPryqexUsSUibABnITZ6-QzCPTKpw021yekP7NejwR-rGQXCs) is on a car infotainment system running Linux, addressed the BLE mini via libusb and used it to receive BLE tire sensor data and put it in a oneliner that’d be read by an app.

As a web dev, I originally got into the project to build the app/frontend showing the data. Of course I’d like to be able to use it, too. Unfortunately, the original dev is not responding anymore. On top of that, I can’t get my hands on a BLE mini but I have several Duos (and a RB Link Shield).

Questions:
Can the Duo be used the same way? Is the fw 0.3.1 already capable of this?

Thanks a lot in advance.
