USB development board with a custom scriptable language

Posted on Wednesday, March 21st, 2012 in open source, project logs by DP

SigLab is an open source USB development board that takes commands from a small program that runs Python-like scripts. The hardware is basically a PIC18F2550 breakout board, but the firmware makes it easy to get started using the familiar desktop scripting language.

SigLab is a combination of open hardware and FOSS (free and open source software) projects to provide easy to use and full featured scriptable USB interface for digital electronic experiments. SigLab USB interface consisted with Microchip’s PIC18F2550 microcontroller unit and it provides 14 bidirectional (digital) I/O ports for external interfacing.
