I'm looking for some hardware that would be compatible with RealStudio for controlling outside devices or receiving signals from outside devices.

As an example, a company called Phidgets (www.phidgets.com) makes USB controllers that address different scenarios. You can obtain a controller that provides 8 bits of I/O that you could use to trigger lights on or off, or connect to pushbuttons for user input.

I'm wondering if anyone has found something similar that is compatible with Real with supplier support (sample code, ect.)

Any help welcome!

Thanks!

Eric

There is code on http://phidgets.com from RealBasic..
Also there is the MBS plugins which have Phidgets in their USB plugins.

I use Arduino alot, with that i talk trough serial and custom protocols.
It's cheaper but requires more work. On the other hand it gives you much more control than phidgets.

I'm not clear as to your needs, but have a look at Silicon Labs (silabs.com) they have a variety of USB interfaces which are easy to communicate with.
