Analog Input Testing

November 6, 2013 in 8 Channel PDU by Joshua Oster-Morris

The analog inputs work perfectly and are currently able to completely replace the digital inputs I was using before. They also will allow much more complex features I have not yet implemented but can imagine. Things like knobs for dimming lights and controlling loads with temperature or light sensors among many other cool ideas.

So far, this new board has worked exactly according to plan. I am stoked!

The next step is to create all the new analog functions and update the iOS software to support those functions. Once I am happy with that, I’ll redesign the boards one more time adding 4 more analog inputs and completely removing the digital input circuitry which is officially deprecated now. I’ll take that opportunity to reconsider the physical layout as well. I am considering a waterproof plug for all the low current IO. It should make the product quite a bit better looking.
