    Marty,
    Is the USB supported version now in the Prosim Pre-release? I just ordered 2 of these boards and anxious to try them out.
    Thanks,
    Rob

    Re: PoKeys USB Interface

    Hi Wendy,

    Coming slowly from a deep sleep......

    It seems completely clear that the card is much cheaper than most other types.
    But still not clear to me (although it may be answered implicite or explicite several times) if we need to see the card as an addendum or as an repacement or ... may be both ?

    But can you tell in simple language ... what's the place for:

    Open Cockpits hardware users:

    Replace mastercard ?
    Replace the "only outputs card" ?
    Replace joystick card ?
    Replace USB keys card ?

    FsBus hardware users:

    No experience here, but probably you can make analoge questions and answers ?

    Bodnar cards ?

    In my specific position: Combination with 767 Level-d cockpitbuiling ?

    Wendy, can you tell me what LCD it is? I'm looking for something to interface the IRS selector display

    Wendy,

    took a glance at the manual - and correct me if I'm wrong - but using the card for LED's still calls for soldering resistors between the particular LED and the card. If you take e.g. a card from CPFlight (MIP737) there is no need for resistors or anything, just hook up the wires. Which means if I was to use these cards for an overhead I still have a lot of soldering to do.

    BTW, how many cards would I have to use for an (forward) overhead panel?

    It's not in the prerelease yet. We are aiming for a release this week. If your cards arrive earlier, please let me know and I will provide you with a new built that supports them.

    Re: PoKeys USB Interface

    This thread seems to be turning into more about ProSim than the PoKeys IO card, so if this post was successful that I tried a couple days ago, I can show in a youtube video a sample of a simple application I wrote to handle components for a Learjet 45 simpit. While you don't have to write code, it didn't take much to write this app, I think I spent about 15 hours on it and gives you complete total control for serious customization. Specifically in the video it shows support for the RMU's which are manipulated by buttons and dual encoders. Since this video, the app has been modified to autoload/start, detect and run minimized in the system tray. The user only need open it to configure or reconfigure the settings. I'm working on adding modules to support the DU's and the AML pushbuttons, leds and switches of the lower MIP panel all supported via a single Pokeys card.

    The card supports two 8x8 led matrix's and a 16x8 matrix for switches. So you can support 64 leds and 128 switches off of a few pins. But yes, the led support means you have to build some external circuitry to serialize the data (see user manual) and use an external power source and resistors. For the switches, you also are better off to support the tie in from the switches to the matrix grid via a interface board to connect to the Pokeys card. Ie: switch with connector to i/f board, i/f board to pokeys matrix pins. It makes for a cleaner solution anyway.

    This may have been asked before, but is this card available anywhere in the U.S.? Shipping would probably make the cost almost double to get one here.

    My cards will be here tomorrow so anytime after tomorrow eveing would be great and i will test them out in my Simpit.
    Thanks,
