Here's what I have at the moment for a feature list.....but it's a draft and not in any way settled so stuff will probably get added, the free/pro choice reviewed, etc

Let me know what you thing.

Just thinking out loud:

CAN in/out.
Arbitrary analog sensor in.
Idle control with spark.
Flexible map sampling (itb can give funky readings otherwise).
Good lambda control.
Bank lambda control on v engines.

Turn on arbitrary output channel in sw.
Turn on arbitrary injector for x time y number of times.
Turn off arbitrary injector y number of times with engine running (For lambda controller setup. This could be automatic).

Give spark with x dwell at y frequency for z time.

Do something based on low oil pressure/high temp etc.

Fan speed control.
AC control.

Do error handling based on sensors not working.

Misfire detection based on crank speed.

Care to elaborate on reasoning for such?
I.e.: under what "X" case is "Y" a good idea?

Fault finding with engine off.

Possibility to look at injector spray and measuring dead times.

Checking sparks, scoping dwell.

Thanks Glenn - let me see what I can do about updating the list.

Some of the stuff on your list we have bit it's not spelled out clearly like the HW has 5 AN/digital ins that can be used for anything, like controlling AC on ANY available output pin.

Fan the same, the optional about switch function has separate on/off set points so you can say link 1 set to Coolant Temp then On above 180F, off below 170F and hook it to the fan. Done.

or the pin could be a Waring light the lights based on up to 4 condition

or NOS by picked say TSP above 90% AND optional input 1 ON

Or there will be a table driven PWM so you could vary the fan speed based on Coolant temp.

The outputs are very flexible and let you create your own functions to do exactly what you want.


Diagnostic type stuff is pretty much completely missing......there should be some of that.

Very good!

Not so much diagnostic as keeping the engine running if sensors fail as good as possible (lots of scenarios). I think this is for later though. I did not miss anything in your list except CAN (only very basic functions needed as I want a can transciever in the hardware (i think this can be a big selling point for the newer car installs)). The rest is for later I think.

ahh, like a "limp home". we might be able to do something with that in PRO but it's probably out of scope for FREE. Basically we look at how complex and easy to bugger up in a way that will hurt some one or something as the main free/pro decision maker, followed by will it increase cost some how and limp home kind or fits the easy to break the engine if done wrong so PRO :)


PRO will have CAN for sure and I still want it across the board and free up the 4 pins USB is eating.

Here's the current feature list. I added the HW type stuff the FW is being setup to support.
