I don’t worry a second with their analog sensors working on FEZ. Maybe it will need some calibration and cabling, but they are pretty standard.
Not exactly The so-called “drivers” are in fact .Net assemblies, COM libraries and code snippets, nothing else. The installation programm also adds a small utility to check the connected boards, but it’s not a driver either.
When you plug such an USB board in your PC, it’s detected by Windows as an HID device and doesn’t need anything else to work.
From what you’ve written and what I understand (which may not be the same, I admit ), I think it will work straight forward.
Indeed. But not all distributors propose all the stuff. But it doesn’t really matter, as I’m now very confident in making FEZ and Phidgets working together The FEZ Domino should be enough.
It could have been so, but I think it won’t. Unless a simple proof of concept (completely working, of course) is enough.
In this case, I could show a FEZ driving a set of Phidgets boards/sensors, all connected to a Phidget 1019 (IO interface board with integrated USB hub), with commands (push buttons, mostly) wired to the FEZ.
If this can be a project, then I may enter the contest.
