Quick Quiz: When did ADI last introduce a new item (not just an update of an existing product), and what was that item?

I think it was the stone tablet and hammer/chisel combo in a fancy leatherette bag.

And they used the hammer & chisel to invent the wheel?

C'mon guys... ADI is an OEM manufacturer who makes many things, many of which I'm sure are recent. It's just that nothing related the home automation has been released for a while, although the cpu platform of the next controller is already in the works. It will just be that much more stable when it's available to us!

Please understand my remarks are tongue-in-cheek, There is no "smiley" icon I could post along with my text.
I'm still quite happy with what the ADI products do for me, and to be frank, I have little need to obtain products that haven't yet been developed.

I would guess that Applied Digital's OEM operations are bankrolling all of the product development in the 2ndary field of home automation. In any business you have to take care of the bread-and-butter clients prior to catering to the small market stuff - otherwise it wouldn't be long before there was nothing available to anyone.

Absolutely tongue in cheek...
But I thought there were many other uses to the Ocelot than HA. i.e. Industrial controllers, etc.

The other thing that would be great would be an update... Even if they don't want to say what the product does (due to competition) at least give us generic updates and timelines. I would rather know that a product would be out in 24 months rather than a black hole of information.

It's not the lack of products... It's the lack of information.

I would have to agree with Tim on this!

Yah, can't imagine why ADI wouldn't post all their detailed development plans! Intel and Microsoft always keep me right up to date on everything they are doing! ;\)

They were good up until September in keeping us informed...
They posted the specs of the FireCat this time last year and gave a summer ETA. Summer rolled around and they gave a quick update in that the exec is working/stable and mentioned the adding of an SD port. Then in September, they still let us know what was going on with a two liner, saying other priorities came along.

Then... poof... Nothing. That is what is bugging me... The good job of keeping us informed and then nothing.

If they dropped us a note and said the FireCat would be due out summer of '08 or summer of '09 or summer of '10 or never, I'd be happy. Nor are we asking for schematics or any other new cool secret features. Just a communiqué on the dev status of the features listed in the FireCat (or any other product us users are interested in.)

Should we maybe send in a rescue mission to Branson to see if they're still there. Anyone heard any banging on pipes, or seen any signal flares shot off?

Were still alive and kicken'!

We will soon be releasing the new EIO17. The EIO 17 has 8 relay closures (110V @ 5Amps), 8 inputs (analog or digital, 10 bit resolution 0-5volts) and 1 D-A output (0-5 volt, 12bit resolution).

The EIO17 has an eithernet port built directly on the unit and is internet accessible.

8 Relay closures for turning stuff on and off.

8 Inputs 0-5V for inputs, such as for security, sensing stuff (like temperature, etc).

1 D-A output is an analog output basically to be used as a voltage reference.

Eithernet for controlling it from a software package via the internet. You can control the thing from anywhere on the planet:-)

Sounds pretty exciting to me. Is soon like the next 2-3 weeks or 2-3 months?

I'm not totally into this stuff like you younger guys. If it doesn't have something in it like a 6J7 or a 6V6, I need a bit more 'splainin. \:\)

Is this a module, a replacement for the Ocelot (Firecracker), or something else? I'm ready for some new toys. Santa forgot me at Christmas.

Deane, here is the schematic of a EIO17 input:

Think of the EIO17 as a bigger and better SECU16:

- The 8 output relays are like those on the RLY8XA module: high current and with normally open and normally closed contacts ("Form C relays").

- The 8 inputs are 0-5v but with a 12 bit resolution instead of 8 bits. This means it is 16 times more sensitive (4096 steps). Each one can be configured for supervised, analog or current loop mode, just like with the SECU16.

- The input impedance is higher, with 10k pullups on supervised inputs instead of 1k like on the SECU16.

- There is one analog output, 0-5 v, 12 bit resolution (hence the "17" in the module's name vs the SECU16)

- Ethernet connectivity: much faster then the 9600 baud rate of the adnet bus. You could also have several controllers or even a PC access the module concurrently (although not simultaneously) by connecting and disconnecting to it at every poll.
