Thank you so much, your words mean a lot to me!

You're totally getting it, it's like you said; the board is primarily for testing, evaluation, prototyping and proof of concept. It's for those of us who are perhaps not ready to implement our new wiz bang innovation directly onto a micro controller.

When you got things working as expected with the PeekyPokey, the leap towards general purpose micro controllers will look a lot smaller and you can move along implementing onto an Arduino, PIC, AVR, MSP430 or what have you.

The software always runs on the PC using USB to control the board itself. Since your average PC is vastly superior in terms of raw processing power and overall resources, it's much easier and quicker to implement your application logic there while using PeekyPokey as a dedicated h/w interface.

You can save optimizations for performance, foot print and economical use of resources for later when porting to an actual micro.

Cheers!
