Here is why YOU need an
If you're frustrated with
joystick cards that drift, you need an EPIC. The EPIC is immune to drift.
The EPIC uses a crystal-controlled
clock to calibrate input devices (joysticks, rudder pedals, steering wheels,
etc.) and generate the pulse widths read by your PC. This clock is not affected
by heat, the speed of your PC's main CPU, or bus speed.
If you're frustrated with
joystick cards that need constant adjustment and fiddling to work "just
right" in one program but then don't work worth a darn in another,
you need an EPIC.
All calibration data is
stored on your hard disk and is loaded into the EPIC prior to running your
program(s). This calibration data can be modified as needed and, once you've
found the "perfect setup" for any particular program, you can
save it to a seperate configuration file.
If you use many different
types of input devices, you need an EPIC.
Calibrate your devices -- once -- and then leave them alone.
If you want to program your
joystick buttons to do something more than hit a few keystrokes, you need
The power of the EPIC Programming
Language (EPL) gives you complete control over all analog and digital inputs,
outputs, and translations and supports complex conditional statements, variables,
flags, and multi-threaded tasks.
If you're concerned about
compatibility, you need an EPIC.
The EPIC appears to any
program to be a standard speed-compensating joystick card, and can modify
any input device to "look like" any output device. Want to make
your CH FlightStick Pro act like a Thrustmaster FCS? The EPIC can do that.
If you're building a home
cockpit, you need an EPIC.
There is no other low-cost
system available today that provides the expansion capabilities, analog/digital
input/output control, and generic programmability of the EPIC. Nothing.
None. Nada. Zip.
Anything that you can build,
you can use with the EPIC. Multiple throttles? No problem. Rudder pedals
with toe brakes? We have them already. Lights? Buzzers? Child's play. LED
displays? Currently shipping. Speedometers? Tachmoeters? Altimeters? HSIs?
We're working on it; give us a few days.
If you're a programmer,
you need an EPIC. No, I mean, you really need an EPIC.
Have you ever wanted to
just get rid of that ridiculous timing loop for reading the joysticks? Now
you can. Using the EPIC's advanced interface you can read the position values
of analogs 0 through 15 in approximately 28µs. Yes, that's right,
The EPIC also supports bidirectional
command and data queueing and can generate hardware interrupts. Button events
can be queued by the EPIC until retrieved by a program, and programs can
"fake" button events, initiate execution of EPL procedures, and
transfer data to the EPIC for autonomous processing by multiple "smart"
