|I talked to the maker, provided all the
info and am waiting for the results.
A cheesy mockup with the gauge face printed out on paper. The
dimensions are not the same as it will be once produced but it
allowed me to generalize how it will look and work.
For the past few days I have been working diligently gathering
info from the makers of the chips which are used in the interface
designs and gathering info from some really good programmers in the
programming community. With that I have been able to add some pretty
neat features to the software.
Under "tools" in the menu bar you can now check to see if your
interface has been correctly installed (one click). It will
enumerate any interfaces which use FTDI chips, tell you what port
they are on, give you the name of the chip interface (PLMS has
written the name "Consult" to their interface chip eproms) and
automatically assign the correct comport to them. You will also be
able to change latency settings (thanks again BoneZ!) from the
software or directly open the properties page for the interface
without having to go through the typical device manager steps to get
to it. My goal in all this is to reduce connection issues as much as
I've been adding routines to be able to use the DLP-IO8-G
interface board which will ultimately (once the software portion has
been completed) allow you to use external gauges and wideband
sensors with the software using this $30 interface. At this point
everything is strictly for monitoring purposes though. The DLP-IO8-G
has room for 8 inputs.
Oh, and I've setup a software page showing some of my past
software endeavors. Thought I would put it up for credibility
purposes (and bragging rights:). I still have a lot of editing and
sample picture uploading to do for the Nissan Data Voice website so
please bear with me if looking.
Well, at least I got a jumpstart on things. I'm going to surgery
tomorrow. Please wish me luck. And thanks everyone!
