USB HID Device Support: Keyboard and Mouse

The operating system will automatically detect and enable common USB input devices when they are connected.
Device features (macro buttons, 3+ buttons, notifications) that rely on middleware drivers or enabling applications may have limited functionality until those services are installed and operational. Thus, it is recommended to use basic devices for initial development work.
: USB hardware ports provide a limited amount of current per their specification. It is recommended to use a powered USB hub with input devices that have features like backlights, precision optical sensors or when other devices like storage drives, trackballs or touch pads are also connected to the same device port.
The following text should become visible in dmesg after plugging in a mouse or keyboard:
input: USB HID v1.10 Keyboard / Mouse

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
