Open Issues

Here are some of the issues that remain to be addressed:

  • How do we power such a large module?
  • How do we connect the Arduinos to the iPod Touch?
  • How do we connect the Arduinos through a common USB bus?
  • How do we expose the USB ports of the Arduinos?
  • How do we dynamically patch oscilloscope channels?
  • How do we dynamically patch hardware knobs to virtual knobs?
  • How do we reduce the number of analog crosspoint switches?
  • How do we make it easier to integrate digital potentiometers?
  • How do we propagate a cross-channel synchronization signal?
  • How do we mount all faceplate controls on a single faceplate PCB?
  • How do we mount the iPod Touch behind the faceplate?
  • How do we make shields self-discoverable?
  • How do we push software to Arduino?

I hope to have answers to all these questions within two weeks.
