Hello All,

I was wondering what the USB outputs are used for on the InterfaceKit 8/8/8? Are the differential pins connected to the microcontroller? Which microcontroller is used on the board (to see if there are any existing SDKs).


Thanks,

Sumanth P.

The USB outputs are nothing more than a USB hub. In order to use it, you need the power supply:

That one is only for US style outlets. We have many others, just run a search for "power supply".

The microcontroller used on the board is not accessible outside of the Phidget API. You can't pre-program the board, it's a slave device.

You can use this and all other Phidget devices in all major programming environments (C, C++, .NET, Java, etc.) All of the API's are available here (http://www.phidgets.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=Downloads&file=index&req=viewdownload&cid=3)
