  • What is the Qube?

    The Qube is the newest IO innovation by Nilok Productions. It connects to your computer via high speed USB and enumerates as a generic HID device. That means there are no drivers for PC, Mac, or Linux.

    The Qube has 24 "nodes".
    • The first 12 nodes are "high power outputs" capable of 500mA output for relays, solenoids, motors, etc.
    • The remaining 12 are each configurable as an input or an output.
    • 10 of them are analog capable so you can hook up your sensors (temperature, voltage, current, frequency, light, etc).
    • 4 of them are "interrupt" nodes, used for time-critical readings (rotary encoders, IR decoders, etc).
    • 2 of the nodes are configured to be a simple serial module for serial modules (bluetooth, etc).

    Each Qube takes a modular approach. The current firmware revision supports:
    • Any node PWM
    • I2C communication
    • Rotary encoders
    • Analog readings
    • Bluetooth
    • IR decoders
    • EEPROM

    Future revisions will support:
    • Saving node configurations
    • User programmable functions
    • A vast array of sensors

    I am working on a simple DLL to communicate with the Qube libraries. Hopefully there will be integration with RR very soon!
