Terry,

Thank you for confirming this. If the others who have shown interest don't confirm they are still interested, you'll have your 2 units. Otherwise, you will have to wait for the next batch to get a second unit. But in either case, it will be possible to have 2 identical units

Sorry Terry, but I'm still interested. Jean, thanks for the email/update.

Very cool project!

I'm still hoping to suck you into helping with the o5e (Open5xxxECU) project at some point :)

I had a few boards made and have contacted people who had shown interest. I got very few responses back. So I haven't been able to have much feedback on this board in real setups. I actually only have a single user who has installed it and is running it. It is running fine and that user is very satisfied with it.

So due to the almost non-existent response and the impossibility of validating the design more thoroughly, I have not done more to push it. If you are interested, I still have a few boards available and everything needed to assemble a unit. You can PM me for more details.

Unfortunately my implementation has been delayed by many factors. The pressure is on now as the body shell is completed and the engine has been built.
The mating of the body, engine and ruggedized ECU will be starting.

Jean be prepared for some questions as I move forward.

Terry,

No problem. And any question you have is welcome.

And my previous message was not a criticism but simply a statement on the current situation. It's normal that things can delayed and I wouldn't blame someone for this. It's just that I was expecting for more people to get a unit due to the number of people who had expressed an interest in such an ECU here and elsewhere. This would have given me more of a chance to get some feedback. Instead once the unit was ready, in most cases I either got negative or no response when asked if they were still interested.

This looks to be a very desirable thing. Did you still have any available Jean? What was the final price in the end?

Also, as I understand it, this unit would be able to take the output of an LC-1 directly over serial, yes?

Yes I do have have what's needed to assemble a few of those and yes it would be able to directly read the serial data from an LC-1 (or a chain of many LC-1s).

I'll PM you the details.

Are these available as bare boards? if so how much?

No they are not. And you would be missing important parts of the board which are controlled by the Mini IOx that is on the board and that is not available any other way.

So there's an MS3-Pro module now

:D

Any intention to put together a version using it?

The first thing is that it wouldn't fit inside the same small enclosure because that module is too big. And second, the price is so high that it would be impossible for me to compete with whatever DIYAutotune sells. It might be possible with a high volume but that would require a strong commitment (meaning with a large non-refundable deposit) for a sufficient number of units to have a discount price on the MS3-Pro module or, better yet, have a licensing agreement.

So if you want a unit for more than 4 cylinders or if you need MS3-only features, the MS3-Pro is what you should look into. If you need a 4-cylinder solution, then what is described here is a much more affordable solution and it has features not available on other units.

There are those of us who want the IO capabilities of the IOX plus the MS3, all in a nice package, and are willing to pay for it.

Having worked with the MS3, I miss features when I'm looking at an MS2X setup.

Ok. If you can find a group of 10 people who will buy such a unit and who can agree on the needed I/Os then it is something I would consider doing. And it could even be a smaller number but with a higher price per unit. What you can do is start a new thread where you would list your needs.

However, note that one issue would be to find an enclosure. The Cinch ones are nice robust sealed enclosures but they are limited to 48 pins in the one I'm using or 60 pins for the larger ones. With an MS3 and additional I/Os, that would likely not be enough. And a custom enclosure would not be possible with such a small number of units or at least not cost effective.

As awesome as the MS3 option would be, most of my clients are MS3 V3 based and looking to goto sequential.

This smaller ECU would fit the bill quite nice. Did this ever get beyond the initial batch?

No. But I still have a few available. You can PM me if you want to discuss that further.

Jean,
Is there any documentation, pin outs etc for this board on your site? I have just done a search, seen the IOX stuff, but seen nothing about this rascal.
Thanks
