any chance you can add  pro shift functionality into the board?

At this point I am afraid it is too late, but that's a good point.
I wish I had thought about.

I will investigate if I can do that in the 2nd version of the board.



Thank you
Cristiano


any update on the possibility of add the pro shift function to the board.

At this point is to late to add that functionality to the board.
I have been thinking these 2 option:

- leave the board as it is and add that function to the next version.

- OR add an extra connector to the board to connect "expansion" boards with new functionalities, such as one that will drive LEDs or 12 bulbs.


Well I would say either way would work for me, only bad thing is I wait again.

My vote goes to the expansion board as well.

In fact, I've been thinking for a while that having a single master board that connects over USB with several expansion boards providing additional features could be an improvement over the current multi-USB method. It's been in use in flight simming for a while now. Flight Illusion and Open Cockpits use such a structure, among others.

For those of us without dedicated racing rigs having only one USB cable would be convenient, and reduce clutter.

It could also benefit the simscreen, as the fat USB cable can be replaced by a thinner and/or more flexible cable(The main reason I haven't mounted anything to my wheel rim).

I would argue not needing a USB interface could also reduce cost, though PIC have it built in so you'd only save on the USB connector(though you'd need something to connect boards together instead).


Of course, I'm just thinking aloud. The current system works well, it's just that it makes for such a mess of wires(Even when using a USB hub).

A connector for expansion boards seems like the most practical use. I can hardly wait until I can get one of these, great work Cristiano.

It shouild be available quite soon.
I have ordered the boards last week and I will receive them in 3 weeks.
Meanwhile I have been working on the software and documentation.
It should take no longer than a couple of month from now.

Hello.
The boards are ready. I have a box full of them.
What is missing now is the software.

I am updating it as quick as possible.
It's not a promise but I am trying to complete it before the end of February.

Regards
Cristiano

Hi Cristiano! Hi Everyones! Since the only thing missing is the software, can you tell what will be the price?
