I’m interested in this feature as well. I’m controlling several motors and would love to be able to call a position, set a flag and get a output high from the T500 while the motor is in transit. My main device can get on with other jobs. I’d tie that User I/O to an interrupt pin on my main unit, and on H2L, clear my flag via an ISR. Then, when I’m ready, go check the status of the Tic and plan my next move.
You’re potentially already using a pair of your serial lines, so you’d need to be able to map the functions to any of the Tic’s four outputs (SDA, SCL, TX, RX).
Thinking aloud, Output Functions might include:
- SpeedPWM (relative to your max)
- PositionPWM (50% = 0)
