    Software to Hardware

    I'm writing my own software for cockpit instruments like Jeehell is doing. Now I'm trying to figure out how to run stepper motors and servos. Will opencockpits cards allow me to control steppers and servos from my own software?

    Yes, if you write your software in C++ you have direct access to all Opencokcpits cards by using their SIOC SDK. Not an easy task for a beginner, but yes
    you can control all OC cards. First you need to code a IOCP Client that communicate with the SIOC Server using the SIOC SDK protocol. Using the SDK protocol you can access all hardware without writing any SIOC scripts.

    Re: Software to Hardware using Arduino

    The easiest way in my opinion is using Arduino software. There is no need for C+ programing. It is very intuitive.
    Google "Arduino + Stepper motors". You will be pleasantly surprised.
