wrt the program.

I am using FTDI devices and the drivers should come up automatically, or are downloadable from www.ftdichip.com - I'll provide details with the user guide.

To display the output data any terminal program would serve.
The unit outputs the info in ascii via USB on a virtual com (serial) port.

Hyperterminal is standard with XP.
Looks like microsoft discontinued providing Hyperterminal with Vista (and the owner of that software has also discontinued their free download service), but, if you google "free Hypertermal" there are still a whole bunch of mirror sites still going.
Or get the necessary files (hypertrm.exe, hypertrm.dll, htrn_jis.dll, hticons.dll) off an XP machine and they will work with Vista.

There are a whole lot of free terminal programs available (e.g. PuTTYtel is a good one) - or just google "terminal emulator" and take your pick.

Hope that helps.
BTW - I have avoided Vista as a lot of my software would not work with Vista when it came out... am sticking with trusty old XP for the foreseeable future.

RedRoo, yes it will. Will work from XF to EL. There is a connector on the base of the unit into which a XF-EB adapter cable can be plugged.

I did make a XF-EB adapter for the current ("analogue") unit, however, the adapter was based on the male recepticle version of the EB2-EL diagnostic plug. Was never able to find many connectors so never made many.

I have almost run out of pcbs for the original unit so have taken the opportunity to redesigned the pcb so that the next batch of the original unit will have a connector into which an XF-EB adapter cable can be inserted. Will be the same adapter cable as I developed for the new upcoming digital version.

The production version should be available end of Sept.
All the parts have been ordered and will be arriving in the next two weeks.
I buy most of my bits direct from overseas and bypass the greedy local middlemen ... helps keep end price down.

I got one of the earlier models of this. They work brilliantly.
I might be getting one of these news as they look awesome.

Guys, just a quick update....

All the bits have arrived and have assembled a whole bunch of the PCBs.
Have tested one of the "production" versions and all works as expected.

Takes a bit of time to assemble each one as there are three thousand parts in each (OK, that is a slight exaggeration). I do enjoy making stuff so assembly is actually enjoyable.

Have made the jigs for routing all the various holes in the cases.
Have written the new user guide.

Have incurred a small delay with the front graphic label.
The label manufacturers had to have the artwork as a CDR file (Corel)... Corel is expensive... took me ages to find a "cost effective" copy.
Anyway, have produced the artwork and it is being done by the printer.
Delivery is in about 3 to 4 weeks.

Attached is a pic of some of the units in their naked state.
