Funny you should mention that. I have a phidgets UI-style rotary encoder on my desk to test this. Hopefully I'll have an answer soon, but I haven't yet compiled code (the linux lib for the phidgets) for the gumstix, and at the moment I'm trying to find out if my net-wifi-microsd board is defective (see another thread on this list).

Has anyone successfully used Phidgets devices with Gumstix? It looks like the Verdex models should support the USB host required by the Phidgets USB peripherals and their Python API, but I'd like to hear from someone who has done it before I buy a Verdex board. If this works, I'd also be curious if a powered USB hub would be able to support multiple Phidget devices.

I'm looking to do some physical computing projects with Python, and this seems like a good fit. If anyone has other suggestions on using Gumstix and Python to drive motors and sensors, I'd love to hear them. Thanks in advance.


Here's the Phidgets site:
