    Hello,
    I'm creating a USB device with a PIC microcontroller to crontrol display devices like gauges or LEDs. I can't understand how to get it work with X-SIM. Is X-SIM HID compliant? Should I rather create a C program on my PC to catch data and send it to my PIC? How to catch data from X-SIM?

    Thanks a lot.

    Thank you very much for your answer. I've tried to search over the Internet the source code of the plugin, but impossible for me to find this. Could you send me a link if you have one please?

    Thank you very much. I've token a little look at this, and it seems to be quite complicated. I'll watch it more precisely later.

    Seems like you can start out (and maybe never change from) using Force Profiler to send data to you USB based device. This might work if your device looks like standard serial port to the OS (for example, you can connect to it with terminal program).
