I have added PDW Support (other languages) for those users who are fluent in e.g. German, French or Swedish but not in English.

Data Slicers and Interfaces / FSK to USB Interface Enclosure
« on: 13 Sep 2019, 15:26:01 »

Based on user requests, it has been a long cherished wish to realize a matching enclosure for the USB interface. With the recent purchase of a Prusa I3 MK3 3D printer, finally these requests can be accommodated.



The enclosure comes in 3 colors: black, red and silver. Quality PLA filament is used on a powder coated steel bed, which gives the enclosure a nice looking textured surface. The lid is mounted on the case by a snap-fit connection.

Prices and 'Buy Now' buttons for instant ordering can be found on the Order page.

Discriminator Outputs / 'Is a resistor necessary?'
« on: 14 Feb 2019, 18:48:56 »
Today in my email, a question about the need to use a resistor in a discriminator output. My reply:

Is safe sex necessary?  ;)

https://www.discriminator.nl/faq/index-en.html - 'Discriminator Outputs', Question 6 -

'What's the function of the resistor?

Connecting or disconnecting an interface to the discriminator output might cause a short-circuit. The limiting resistor prevents the discriminator IC from being loaded or damaged. Further to that, it prevents your PC's microphone or line input from being overloaded.'

I'm happy to announce that the 4 level interface is available again. Although the demand has decreased considerably over time, I have received several requests for the interface, mainly from the US.

Main hurdle to continue the interface was the circuit board. I have found a supplier that can produce quality boards in low volumes at an economically feasible price.

Today, I have installed an SSL certificate on this site. That means that all communications between your side and discriminator.nl, including the contact form and this forum (login/password) is encrypted.

Data Slicers and Interfaces / 4 level interface discontinued
« on: 06 Feb 2018, 19:48:15 »
After almost 15 years, I have decided to discontinue the 4 level interface. Due to reduced sales over the last few years, it is not economically feasible anymore to produce this interface. Due to the complexity of changes needed to PDW, there are no plans to develop a USB version of the 4 level interface.

The circuit board design and component list is available on my site if you wish to build the interface yourself. Upon request, I will be happy to share the Eagle circuit board design file.

All boards sold through discriminator.nl have two years warranty. After the warranty period, repair is always possible for a reasonable price.

Over the last couple of days, I have moved discriminator.nl and the forum to a new hosting provider. If all is well, you will not have noticed this. However, in the process files may have been lost or corrupted. Please let me know if you find anomalies.

Today I have released a beta version of PDW. Andrey Grodzovsky has taken on PDW's email function. Thanks to him, it now supports SSL as well. I have tested the new version with Gmail. Your experiences and bug reports are welcome below ;)
