Usual story: no money, lots of deadlines, unsustainable promises, social responsibility, no time at all, but the unique opportunity to get an additional time-sink. Yeah. Seconds later, I got some huge flip-dot displays I couldn't even carry myself and a lot of single modules. Soon (measured in seasons) it became obvious, that reverse engineering the RS485 based IBIS bus would not make me very happy in the long run. So I decided to get rid of the original controller board and drive the flip-dot modules myself. The goal would be a non intrusive board to directly connect any BROSE display (or array of the same) through the proprietary 60-pin connector... So, this is the story of that effort...

My PCBs didn't arrive in time, thus I have to cancel this workshop. Sorry guys!

Usual story: no money, lots of deadlines, unsustainable promises, social responsibility, no time at all, but the unique opportunity to get an additional time-sink. Yeah. Seconds later, I got some huge flip-dot displays I couldn't even carry myself and a lot of single modules. Soon (measured in seasons) it became obvious, that reverse engineering the RS485 based IBIS bus would not make me very happy in the long run. So I decided to get rid of the original controller board and drive the flip-dot modules myself. The goal would be a non intrusive board to directly connect any BROSE display (or array of the same) through the proprietary 60-pin connector... So, this is the story of that effort...
