Download the Qcontrol application source. (32.6 KB)

About 5 years ago, I wrote some "drivers" to interface a Velleman K8055 USB interface card .  After a recent request, I have decided that they should be brushed up a little, and reinstated with a download link.

I'm open to bug reports, but I can't promise that I'll be able to fix them quickly. 

Instructions to compile/install

You'll need the following dependencies:
libusb-dev libqt4-dev qt4-qmake (ubuntu deps)

1) run qmake -o Makefile
2) cd lib
3) make all; make install
4) cd ..
5) make
6) plug in your 8055 usb board
7) sudo ./qcontrol
8) enjoy!

I'm reconsidering writing some python bindings for the driver, stay tuned!
