What is SlicBus?
Invention Recipe: snap-together hardware, add your software, run.
SlicBus allows you to snap-together hardware modules to create a virtual printed circuit board customized for your project. No hardware to build, just add your software and connect your system to the outside world.
SlicBus is a standardized method of connecting your software running on any processor platform, to Sensor and Control modules. It allows you to quickly go from idea to working prototype.
The SlicBus standard is Open Source and License Free, which means that you can buy SlicBus modules from multiple suppliers not just from SlicMicro. So the chances that you will be able to find the module you need are much higher.
You connect to SlicBus modules via something that is available on practically every computing system: the common serial port. When building your invention, you can write your master software on anything from a microcontroller to a super computer and then, read sensor data from, and write control information to SlicBus modules.
Any device that has a serial port can be programmed to be a SlicBus master. Multiple slave modules can be connected to a master's single serial port via the SlicBus Connect module which is the SlicBus equivalent of a USB hub or a ethernet switch.
