I love the project whose the sources are opened !
It's a great project !
Let me introduce my controller for different AiNet peripherals called Ai10. Initially is has been developed to let my other in-car controller to adjust major settings of Alpine PXA-H701 processor. However I tried to keep the board and firmware quite flexible for different hardware setups. Ai10 is controlled over RS232 (COM) or UART serial interfaces. It also could be connected to modern PCs thru various USB->COM adapters.
Ai10 allows to monitor AiNet bus and send any packets to AiNet. Current firmware also has built-in commands for major PXA-H700/701 or MRA-F350 settings (volume/balance/fader/sub. kevel/input select) and AiNet CD Changers controls (change disk/track, play/pause).
Boars schematics and firmware source are opened for community and available for download on Project Ai10 page https://sites.google.com/site/projai10/
Further details about Ai10 project posted in this thread: http://www.mp3car.com/car-audio/1286...-solved-4.html
Thank you. Hope that someone will join and contribute the project.
Would this allow allow me to use a MRA-F350 with a carpc? I'm wanting to use the optical out on my computer, but I can't seem to find a straight answer on this. That amp has the 17 band EQ that is controlled by the compatible headunits which also tell it when to turn on (no remote wire).
I sent you an email from the Ai10 site as your mp3Car PM inbox was full. I am interested in obtaining one of your PCBs if you still have any available. Feel free to contact me when you have some time. Thanks for your hard work and dedication to this project!
Hi, do you have controllers for sale?
probably a little late on this and not quie understanding it all. but is anything still available from you? like boards, schematics, ect. so i can get a printed board and parts from digikey and make a controller. Id love to be able to control the 701 through your controller and a usb connection.
