Hi , now I have an Arduino + DIY controller who get signal via usb from my PC(Vixen).
-18 channels
Operating principle:
  |-->via generic serial(USB) and Baud Rate(9600)
   |--->   to

Electronic principle:
It work only on/off without dimming.
Arduino code:
What I want to do now? I want to change PC from this schema with Raspberry Pi V2 B(FPP) , is it possible?
   via USB

P.S.:The controller isn't my project I buyed from , Ciprian.


FPP supports a Generic Serial Channel Output, so you should be able to use your Arduino with FPP if the Arduino provides a serial port over the USB connection to the Pi/BBB.


I'm trying to do something very similar to this, which USB output in Xlights would be most like a generic serial?



I am not sure xlights has a generic serial so I don't know.  It might but I have never looked at it.  I rarely configure outputs in xlights.  :)
