    Exclamation V1 Virtual Display : Valentine One to PC via USB

    I have been working on this for quite some time, but I have finally finished it. After abandoning the serial interface for several reasons I came up with this:



    There may be some enhancements in the future, but for now this works great.

    Connection:
    • The parts list for the connection is:
    • 2 10k resistors
    • 1 15k resistors
    • 1 2.2k resistor
    • 1 .033uF capacitor
    • 1 +12V to +5V regulator (e.g.) 7805A
    • 1 2A2904 transistor
    • 1 USBMOD3 (the best price I found was at http://www.futurlec.com/USB.shtml )
    • A 4 or 6 conductor modular phone jack (or you can rip apart a phone cord)
    • A small enclosure (such as this ) to make things neat.


    Look for the thread on the accompanying software in the software forum.

    Awesome work zPilott!! I'll have to see if I can make this one work with my V1

    Does the concealed display need to be attached in order to get the output signal?

    Thanks for reminding me, I should have said this before. The current design works ONLY ON ITS OWN!!!!!!

    DO NOT CONNECT THE REMOTE DISPLAY


    (sorry about that, just wanted to make it clear that running a splitter and connecting the remote display MAY cause problems )

    I am working on modifying things to allow for that, or for putting an in and an out jack on the board for connecting the remote display.

    That's what I figured... just wanted to make sure

    You can do what I did on one of Jim's designs and just put in a 2-pin jumper or single position DIP switch inbetween that resistor and +12V (or in this case, +5V). Not as elegant as an input/output port, but it works.
