Looks epic. :D
I see it has both audio and usb, nice.
Great for programmers to test their work..
I'll see if I soon have the money available. ^_^


The USB is for the 5V power supply, so both the USB and audio connector need to be plugged in for it to work. There is no serial interface. Sounds like you might be interested in the DIY version :)

Perhaps. :D
And doesn't the chip have a RX/TX pin?
Yet for those to work the firmware(Does it have firmware? :O) would need to support serial output.

Add me to the list Dan. I'll give it a try.

There is no serial interface, as it can be unreliable over long lengths of cable. With the audio method, the cable can be made very long and it will still work. There is firmware, but its purpose is to control the HV tube supply, there is no scope for adding serial.

I see.
Maybe there could be a new manner, then?
Like a network stack orso, like TP-Link has some el-cheapo solutions... Yet one would need to have either USB or PCI knowledge...
Or make a custom shield...
You would need to create an Ethernet driver in the firmware, though... That would be some hassle, as in getting the network frame properly, then you'd want it to have a DHCP client service, then fill the IP in on the software which would need to send a request, then the firmware answers the CPM integer, you'd need a unique MAC address, then decide what protocol to run it with, like a UDP socket which I'd prefer due to it having a rather basic functionality and doesn't need stuff like a three-way-handshake, and what port...
But that's where I would come in handy, having access to the Cisco Academy website...
Just a wild idea again.. But yeah, Ethernet(Cat 5 UTP) can range up to give-or-take 100 meters...

Not to provoke stuff, just because I like to be sure, some reference material:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transmission_Control_Protocol <= TCP
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_Datagram_Protocol <= UDP

http://i.imgur.com/owkOLAV.png <= DHCP discover message
http://i.imgur.com/qtES7Nh.png <= DHCP offer message

skip if it's not interesting.. :P
Let me know if you want more. ^_^
