Viscometer board proceeding, some RS232 fun.

  Well, things have been proceeding apace, and I’m feeling pretty confident that I’ll have both versions done fairly soon. For debugging the device I’ve decided to create a kind of terminal, this allows one to directly access commands and see log information from a terminal program. This is handy for seeing data over time and for various other uses.
 
Here are some pictures…

The early output of the sample terminal. I have created a kind of console, I will implement commands as they are created.

I think this is going to turn out well.

Getting closer to final completion

A long road behind and still some ahead, here are some pic of the viscometer in its state of completion.
