I have the opportunity to get an older FDS CDU to go with my existing latest type FDS CDU.
The older version has no screen and comprises a fascia with backlit buttons, keyboard pcb and InterfaceIT USB board connected to the main pcb.

My question is will the current InterfaceIT driver software run this older board and link into Sim-Avionics

Thanks in advance for any advice

David

That version is basically a "keyboard encoder". Test it with Notepad, I think the focus needs to be on Notepad to work.

That is a really old version of the FDS CDU, next version had a PS1 screen and used the Interface software. Then the latest VGA version carries on from there, again using the FDS-CDU software.
