I wasn't quite sure whether to put this question under PC Oscilloscopes, Realworld Applications or ... until I saw this message thread, anyhow.
It is intolerable that register-level information doesn't seem to be available for the purpose of writing one's own drivers. I'm running in Win2k, Linux and BeOS and wish to both build my own USB-parallel adapter and use the ADC-212/100 hardware for purposes not advertised or forseen. An example is the GNURadio project, of which I have been a contributor for some time. I have also written a Delphi console for the SDR-1000 amateur transceiver, so am no newbie in the area of software development for this type of application.
Considering the cost of this unit in Australia (over AU$2000 at Emona) a non-working Linux driver just isn't acceptable, and I doubt the company will ever be likely to support the BeOS. Nor will fixing the driver for Linux help much if it's only guaranteed to work with one distribution.
Thoughts? I'd ideally like to see this information made freely available. Please chase up company policy on this and see if it can't be changed to make the unit more usable for those of us who have long since moved beyond mere instrumentation.
