@Steve
Your SW is running nice on my RSP1 and W10.
Installation went smooth.
Thank you for kind words in "Release notes".
Expecting to have my ERASynth+ in hands soon.
So now some bridge SW must be written in between ;)

Great work

I'll be interested to hear how you go with the ERASynth, looks interesting.

Plan is to put one RPI in between, two USB ports and translate/emulate your Trackgen
protocol to "language" known to ERASynth...

Sounds great. The protocol (such as it is) is listed in the instruction manual. If you need any further information, please let me know. The only change so far, is the addition of a synch output pulse from the Aduino at the beginning of every sweep cycle, but I don't think that will affect what you plan to do. There may be an addition in the form of a simple ACK/NAK handshake for each command sent from the analyser. If I make any major changes, I'll let you know. Good luck and happy coding :)

@Steve
Just to inform about first bump along the way ;)
Arduino Virtual COM Port in Windows 10 Device Manager installation,
without Arduino HW is impossible mission so far.
Here have only RPI 2B+ available.
Must consider other way around :mrgreen:

Like this COM1 created with trial version of http://freevirtualserialports.com
real working version is this one -> https://www.hhdsoftware.com/virtual-serial-ports / not cheap ;)
In that case no RPI and my SW translator can run on PC.

So rather like to see some script language support on your future application, in way to run other signal generators...

As I understand it, are you are trying to use a virtual comms port to talk to the analyser, instead of using the Arduino ? You want to receive the analyser commands into your own software that drives the Synth ? Or have I misunderstood what you are trying to do ?

I use CSV List Browser which uses the Com0Com virtual port system. I'll have a quick look tomorrow and see if it's possible to do what you want.

You can get Com0Com here:
