Arduino Board as HP-IL device?

RE: Arduino Board as HP-IL device?

Yes it emulates an IL Drive. DIR, WRPT, READP works.
But it is still in a experimental phase.

The Arduino board is directly connected with the PIL-Box (not PIL-IO)
(TXD->RX, RXD->TX, +5V->+5V and GND->GND) - not USB!
With simple "Serial" commands you can read an manage all IL frames.

I have to exchange the Arduino Uno Board, with the bigger one (Mega) - because of internal memory problems (SRAM is to small for 2x256Byte drive buffers and the SD Library, because of that, it is a little bit buggy.)

At the moment the only limitation is, there is only one LIF file (640kb) per SD Card.
But the Arduino can be extended with a LCD with menu keys for choosing the current LIF file, for example. Or perhaps i can do it with a special HPIL command...

I feel, its faster then the PC version.
I will still work on it and i will post any news and the sources here.

Best regards
