SimVimCockpit wiring architecture, input/output extensions.
A guide to components that can be used with SimVim Cockpit interface - breakout boards, controllers, integrated circuits, indicators, motors and other electronic components.
Switches, Push-buttons, Rotary switches and Encoders - how to connect and configure all inputut controls in SimVimCockpit
Using angular or linear sensors (analog or digital) for axes control and directly change data values. Resistive, optical, magnetic sensors. Calibration.
Use Direct or Extended Serial digital output for annunciators (LEDs) or other On/Off type outputs for your cockpit (such as relays, actuators for flags, control signal for ICs, etc.)
Use 7-segment indicators with SimVimControl, connecting each 7-segment digit to its own shift register.
SimVimControl supports direct output to character LCD displays (16x2, 16x4, 40x2 etc.)connected to SimVim bus.
Servos are one of the options for creating needle gauges with SimVimControl.
Last updated 17 December
Using moving-coil ammeters you can build most of the gauges with limited rotation angle. Also, you can control any other PWM devices
Stepper motors are a good option for creating quiet and fast needle gauges with either limited or full-circle rotaiton range.
