HiTechnic SuperPro Prototype Sensor - 100% Pure Epic

I received my HiTechnic SuperPro Prototype Sensor in the post yesterday and it’s epic.  It’s epic for a number of reasons:

  • It has more inputs and outputs than you can shake a stick at, both analogue and digital.
  • It can 6 digital strobe outputs (great if you want to start your own disco or see which of your friends has epilepsy).
  • Has a LOT of RAM and program flash memory.
  • 1MB (!) of flash memory, which presumably, you can use for data logging.
  • It can be programmed with SPC (SuperPro-C) using a test release of BrixCC.

The last point is of course the most awesomest (look it up, it exists) of the whole thing.  I’ve managed to make it work now with a test build of BrixCC which even comes with a cool little simple terminal so you watch it output text.  John Hansen, sir, you rock!

I’ll be putting this baby through its paces over the next little while.  I am not sure what I’ll do with it yet, but I am sure it’ll come to me.  For now I will leave you with a screenshot of my very first program, what else, a “Hello World”.
