USB Chicklet

Is it possible to use more than one controller when using the USB Chicklet? If so do you need two USB Chicklets or can you use a splitter to separate the one USB port?

The Chicklet only supports HID. It does not support HUB. We have a solution that does support HUB and other device classes however that solution was not cost effective. We wanted to keep the device affordable for FIRST Teams. Also the 15-pin joystick port does not provide enough interface to support more than one device. We have a device that outputs RS232 data instead of analog/digital. It is less expensive than the chicklet. If we had a serial port on the O/I this would have been the way to go.

The Chicklet has protection against reversing its polarity so don't worry about that. The connector that is supplied with the chicklet comes apart buy unscrewing the metal plug from the plastic housing. The Chicklet needs a center positive to function. So solder the positive lead of a backup battery to the center terminal of the plug. The negative(black lead) goes to the outer terminal. Or while practicing you can use a 9 VDC (center positive)unregulated power supply.

The Chicklet does not require programming. It can be configured and calibrated which is what pins 1 and 2 on the header pins are for. Please read the user manual for more information:

About the serial port on the OI-

The OI has a radio modem port that is not used during competition. Is it a functioning serial port, or simply a hardwired deal that cannot be interfaced to run data into the competition port's data out?

Actually the radio modem is used in competition. It is how the O/I communicates with the R/C. I think you mean the dashboard port, which provides output only.

Re: USB Chicklet

One warning about the Chicklet:

Using the original X-Box controller. We had two. One made in China, and one made in Malaysia. The chicklet said that the one made in China was not supported, while the one made in Malaysia was. Just chance I brought two with me.

Anyway, It works.

Yes, not all of the original X-box controllers are supported. There are so many differant variations of the x-box controller, it was not possible to support them all. For some reason thier PIDs are different. The same is true of the Logitech dual action gamepad. If you purchase an old one from E-bay there is no guarantee it will work. My suggestion is to by a new one(Logitech). They are only $20 and in our opinion a much better controller than the X-box or 360.
