8 Channel USB digital signal generator

Posted on Friday, March 2nd, 2012 in Development, DIY by DP

 

Dilshan developed a 8 channel USB digital signal generator and an open source Windows application called Kidgo Player to drive it. The hardware is basically just a PIC18F2550 USB breakout board used to provide 8 digital outputs for his software. The Kidgo Player’s source is available on GitHub, and has the following features:

  • Save waveforms and settings as binary file (KDF file) or export waveform as a text file
  • Playback controls such as “Play to segment”, “Play from segment”, “Step back”, “Step next” and “Clear”
  • Shifting and rotating waveforms
  • Invert, Reset, Clocking and Binary Generator functions
  • Copy and Paste waveforms
  • Mute function to each individual channel
  • Launch without any installation or configuration (design to work as portable Windows application)

  • Drone: So these go for around $330 USD and NO published calibration procedure online or otherwise? Given what's inside - I don't think I'll be considering...
  • Pekka Akselin: This is ridiculous!? :-) We are back at 256(!) byte EPROMs that needed multiple, a handful, of voltages to run! :-(
  • KH: Let's try a back-of-envelope calc balancing energies. From MCP1700 datasheet, there are graphs for a 200mA load step. Estimate the energy shortfall as 12uJ. Say...
  • Daniel: It's been a week and my comment is still awaiting moderation. Apparently the CIA doesn't want their involvement known?
  • KH: Agree, so okay, I guess he must have learned from somewhere. 100nF and 1000uF is so far apart, that was jarring; it's more magic incantation...
