Hell yeah, my serial to parallel decoder “ParallelTender” for my HP 1661A logic analyser is working!

I’ve written it so it takes modular decoders for any protocol you feel like implementing on the Teensy (currently only UART). Data is then passed to the HP over a 16 bit bus, clock, and config flag lines.
Now I’ve got it displaying, I need to write more decoders, and maybe max out the Teensy’s IO to get a 30 bit bus that can be split different ways as required.

Oh shit hang on this thing supports RS232 control too.... can I use the RS232 to make the Teensy control it??

@s0 I'm constantly in awe of all your electronics tinkering, and impressed at how much is over my head, haha.

@virtualwolf most of the time was spent trying to grok the offensively verbose & complete manual of the analyser.
Yesterday I counted, there are at least *nine* abstraction layers in this thing.
