Sorry, I just don't think you are correct. The ArduinoUno is based on the
ATmega16U2 which is (also) a USB *device*. Looking at the schematics,
there's no USB host on the board either.
Are you sure you're not getting confused with having the Arduino operate as
a USB keyboard?!? Or a different Arduino board? The only ones I have seen
that operate as a USB host use a MAX3412e for the host functionality.
If I am wrong, apologies, but I'd like to see the reference you're citing!
In any case, the Arduino-Leonardo board doesn't have a USB host and
therefore can't connected to a USB keyboard/mouse.
