    You mean 14bit and 16bit cores, right?

    The 14bit core is in the older 16F chips. The newer 18F chips use the 16bit core. The newer core provides a few more instructions and also eliminates the need for bank switching -- for the most part. In all it makes programming the PIC a bit easier. Even more importantly is the fact that Microchip makes a C compiler that can be used for FREE for the 16 bit core. For the older 14 bit core chips, you'll have to get your compiler elsewhere. Hi-tech has a good one but the free version is limited in which chips it will work with.

    #1, this thread is almost 3 years old.

    #2, those things are way overpriced. If you are not spamming and actually looking for a solution, look at the Fusion Brain. Cheaper, and more options, as well as more supported. $165 for a 8 relay board with no inputs? You have got to be ****ting me...

    I guess I should have expected a response from the "Fusion Brain Creator"
    Nice work by the way, but there are other options than yours.
    So plugging a product is not allowed here?
    What are you doing?

    I'm just saying this might be a prefered route for some:
    Never mind that some are optically isolated i/o
    Never mind that some do temperature
    Never mind that some function as an encoder

    16 inputs and 16 outputs (no case) (0-30V range 10V Switch Pt) $275.00 ea.
    For those of us that have been writing code and engineering for 20 years, this makes more sense - Drivers are already written, no beta testing.

    Yes, this thread is 3 years old, so if its irrelevant anymore, why has it not been deleted?

    I just saw a low post count and a link to a product in a thread 3 years old. That is 90% of the time spam. Obviously you arent spamming, so apologies.

    Optically isolated, yes that product does it.

    We do temperature as well. We will do encoders soon. Software is no longer beta. Board is production, drivers are 100%, software is bug free. And $50 vs. $275 is a quite a difference.

    You are welcome to buy what you want, it is your money.

    So, which one of you has drivers for OSX?

    Maybe within the next few months... We have someone who will potentially be working on it.

    Start adding remote capabilities to the controlling software (xml, tcp/ip, bluetooth) and your going to have more than carpc enthusiasts jumping at it.

    Great Job!

    I already have the preliminary code for remote control through any web enabled device.
