Re: Data Access Via USB FTDI DLL

Read the API maybe. I haven't read it in a long time, but maybe something useful in there... http://www.kinetic-avionics.co.uk/api.php In Java I use the D2XX drivers instead of the Com port emulator (its faster). I haven't messed with it since the SBS-1 days though. I use the same programming patter...

Re: Setting SBS to local pressure

Basestation is given away for free with the hardware, so it will always be deficient.

Re: software version 175

All support is being directed at the SBS-3. While there may be minor things that help the SBS-1, it would be only an accident. The software releases since 155 are all defective for the SBS-1, so you don't need to upgrade anymore.

Re: Latest Update

Kinetic has never acknowledged this bug (too busy playing with the radio stuff). The bug does not exist :-)

Re: SBS-3 UAT support

Theoretically possible with their design. The UAT requires a true modem, and I think 978 is just barely in their SDR capability.
The LCD is already a year late, so I assume a lot of proposed options never panned out. The page you link never gets updated.

Re: Time for a true "Raw Data" output from SBS-1 ?

Thanks for the quick reply. This is what I am trying to understand. What exactly are the sites that are being used with Beamfinder Plus S if they are not Mode-A/C or Mode-S ? Are they a completely different type of Radar Head in different physical locations ? I think you can assume the Mode-S sites...

Re: Time for a true "Raw Data" output from SBS-1 ?

Maybe Chris at Kinetic will provide an answer? Obviously not. My planeplotter seems to be getting a raw feed from my first generation SBS1- isn't that even better than providing an answer ? Sort of. Kinetic provided a new Basestation TCP port, which allows you to process raw data. Alas, if your obj...

Re: sbs-1 and linux mint

There is no track display program available (such as there is on Windows). I wrote a Java track display program, but Linux is a real toy when it comes to USB. Lots of USB hacking since the 90's, but today you would still be unimpressed with the programming tools available. I just looked to see if th...

Re: sbs-1 and linux mint

The SBS-1 was a closed and proprietary product (no longer supported). You would be better off developing something with an open interface product.

Re: About CRC

Since the USB connection is short, or TCP has its own CRC, the addition of CRC to the Kinetic interface is overkill.

Re: About CRC

Sadly, the Kinetic interface is not very good. It was designed when the goal was to obsfucate the data. Chris has mentioned in another forum to just ignore the CRC, which is good advice . The CRC is computed after the data is descrambled. You have to know the two scramble keys (part of login process...
