Raspberry Pi as a Gas Chromatograph controller?
  • Hello,
  •  
  • I was thinking about a problem we have at the university, and thought maybe this could be a solution. The problem is that we have a Gas Chromatograph which is quite old, which is plugged into an old pc via an 'aux' port. The old pc runs Windows '95 with MS-DOS. It has no USB compatibility, nor can the software be upgraded, (I don't even think they still make aux PCI cards anymore nowadays). My solution would be: Can it be attached to a raspberry pi, so the pi could substitute the old pc as a controller. I read somewhere that MS-DOS programs should be able to work on the pi, and the HiFi-Berry has an aux port, or use an USB-to-Aux adapter. Why would it be usefull? The old computer has no internet connectivity, (only wifi in the building mostly) and you can't attach a printer or thumbdrive to it, to keep your files. What do you guys think?

The main difficulty you'll come upon is that the RPi is a single computer at coronary heart. This means that if you are going to use it for controlling your vehicles, it'll be timesharing between all the different numerous software packages that your flight manipulate board need to run consisting of navigation algorithms, communications, and any project-precise computation for sensors. Essay Writing Company
