Bits and Bytes about this fantastic project.
This site is started as add-on service to the original project site.
The founder of the PHCC project has done a great job in setting up this piece of hardware and making it available to the flightsimulator community under the open source GPL license.
On the main site is a very good explanation of what this PHCC is and what can be done with it.
Main Project Site:
On this site extra pieces of information will be published when available, and I have choosen for this approach to keep the original wiki neat and tidy.
At the moment a lot of development is going on for new hardware and software interfacing with Microsoft Flight Simulator.
As soon as working versions are available the core of this developments will be placed in the wiki and more detailed discriptions on this site.
I am not a pitbuilder and just got involved in one build because of my experience in electronics, programming and motion-control.
For this project we adapted the basic idea of PHCC and are developing special boards customized for this build.
Doing this, a lot of basic knowledge about the original project is gathered and this site is my contribution to the community.
The knowledge gathered in this project should become available here for everybody in such a way that it is usable for beginners and advanced users.
I have a strong believe in the strength of this design and will put a lot of effort in the project to further promote it to a wider audience.

Open idea's
I2C_DCC Why not use the PHCC system for my model train?
The only thing missing is the DCC/MFX/Selectrix packet generator.
I2C_LOCONET Same as above only missing the loconet interface.
I2C_S88 Same as above only missing the S88 interface.
