Arduino Board as HP-IL device?

RE: Arduino Board as HP-IL device?

I think a mass storage device is the most interesting application so option #1 is eliminated. Option #3 (Arduino CPU manages HP-IL signals directly) seems to be quite challenging, with many unknowns. Therefore, in my opinion option #2 is the most realistic one.

Quote:The complete HP-IL protocol is then translated to the serial link and the Arduino board has to manage it, see the ILPer (device) or ILCtrl (controller) code for instance.
I think I could manage this part. In the past I did some experiments with rewriting ILPer in Python.

Quote:For full HP-IL capability (including HP-IL controller capability), the PIL-IO must be equiped with the firmware of the PIL-Box, so still using UART link instead of USB.
It's not clear to me how much effort that would be, and if this is straightforward or rather a difficult job. What do you think?
