Added Support for RP Pico and RP2040
I have been making custom PCB's for peoples (mainly friends and friends of friends) racing sims for a while and have been pushing them to use SimHub as the software of choice.
I have recently begun to switch over from AVR processors to the RP2040/Pi Pico due to reduced cost of production and simplified BOM/Design (mainly for speed of development and production). To support this i have been rewriting SimHubs arduino programs to support it on a case by case basis. but now have begun getting requests for control boards from outside my own community making custom firmware for every person unobtainable for the time I have available.
Now that Arduino IDE now supports the RP2040 via the MBED OS Core, can SimHub be updated to support the RP2040/ Pi Pico?
I love SimHub and I love helping people make their ideal setup a reality with custom Wheel/dashboard PCB's and i would love to bring the two together with official support 🙂
THAT WOULD BE AWSOME! I have a lot of rp2040 laing around and now is even cheaper than an arduino! i also just saw a pico W with bluetooth capabilities... could be really fun to build battery powered accessories...
PLS GUYS LIKE THIS POST!
If anyone had any success adding a Pico as a custom serial device or forging some link to the Arduino-Based plugins, please do tell!
Pico support for the win!
