A short BIOE introduction
The Basic Input Output Elements (BIOE) system is an open-hardware platform to bridge the gulf between open-source CACSD systems like Scilab and the physical plant. It is intended for engineers, students, hobbyists, and anyone interested in automation and mechatronic.
BIOE consists of a easly-to-use do-it-yourself hardware with a simple design and a bundle of software components. The mikrocontroller based elements provide a flexible interface to operate with digital and analog signals, incremental encoders, PWM signals, PPM signals for RC servos, I2C and SPI interfaces, etc. These elements are interconnected with a parallel bus to the parallel printer port (LPT) of a PC as illustrated at the right.

All schematics of the hardware and the source code for the mikrocontroller and the computer (LINUX and WIN32) can be found at the download section and the gallery presents pictures and videos of the bioe system.
