  • What do you want in a shutdown controller?

    I know there are a few people working on a pic based shutdown/startup controller at the moment (Including myself), so I though I would ask what features people look for and or want in a shudown controller. If you already have a controller, please let us know what is good/bad about the controller you have and what other features would be useful.

    Some of the features I would like to see

    Power up
    Power good check
    Screen power on delay
    Amp power on delay
    Relay board power on delay

    Power down
    Turns off monitor and relay board
    Pulses mobo for shutdown via power sw and/or serial port
    Power off after delay
    Power off disable (power stay on after ign is switched off)
    Immediate off (emergency shutdown, say for overheat condition or police )

    let me know what you guys think
    Never let the truth get in the way of a good story
