Update to the Serial Gauge

It’s been 8 months since I started selling on Tindie, and in that time I’ve managed to sell more serial gauges than I expected. I have received a little feedback from some of the purchasers, and based on that I’ve updated the software that drives the gauge to enhance a couple of things. The library now contains optimizations to use direct port mode, and main software has an option to set an initialization point. If you’ve got an old gauge, you can download the updated code from GitHub.

I’ve been thinking is there anything I want to add to this project?  Should I start a new project? What should I build? I know no one reads this blog, but if you’ve got ideas, please pass them along.


Tindie – here I come

parts includedWell; I finally put the rest of my little stepper motor gauge project together and listed it on Tindie. Once they approve it, you should be able to find it by following the link at the top of the page to our Tindie Store.

The serial gauge driver allows you to retrofit any gauge mechanism with a simple to drive (any serial signal, it’s opto-isolated even) serial command stream.
