That's what I was thinking too. I have a few Infineon Controllers, and I can not even get the parameters that
were originally flashed with the Parameter Designer software. Almost like this is info that controller
builders might not really want to share, as they have to do a lot of testing themselves to match up how
they component out the boards with what they flash to it. And if they get it right, that makes their controller
better than the next guys. So I understand.
That being said, I'd love to see some Open Source modules for some standard hardware that's not too hard
to put together. Who knows what cool ideas people might come up with that could be added.
Have you thought about doing something open source for the xie cheng Infineon xc846 boards that would replace
Parameter Designer? I mention this as they are probably dirt cheap from source, before they are built up with
transistors, capacitors, mosfets, shunts, etc, which people can put on themselves, if there was some open source
guidance for them to start with.
For myself, I have a real learning curve to go through to understand this stuff. I have a bit of SBC knowledge,
but this kind of stuff is a level closer to the hardware I've never played with.
