SIOC network speed
I have three Open Cockpits dc servo motor cards running 16 engine gauges for my BAe146 platform.
The system works great, however sometimes I get a couple of the gauges (usually engine 2 TGT and engine 4 fuel flow), "lag", or do not move for a couple of seconds during thrust increase/decrease.
I have done some trouble shooting and came to the conclusion that it must be the USB network getting overloaded I have all three cards tied to a separate USB (powered) Hub.
My question is this....can I increase this transfer speed in anyway to alleviate or eliminate this gauge lag?
Thanks in advance
Re: SIOC network speed
Have you tried to put them in one single loop? So use only the ports of a single hub? Possibly that speeds things up, because USB is a serial connection basically.
