The Aleph has a 3.5mm i2c jack on the back that could connect other devices to the stm32 microcontroller. Is it possible to adapt RS422 to i2c with a microcontroller?
For context, I literally have these two devices sitting next to each other on my studio floor.
From the Monome Aleph docs on inter device communication
what is the jack marked ii?
ii is a digital communication protocol. we plan on co-designing with anyone interested. it is a 3.5mm stereo jack (for easy cabling) that uses the i2c bus. the bus is addressable (multiple devices on a chain), fast (400k), and easy to implement on various platforms (ie, an arduino).
in the immediate future we will use ii for inter-aleph communication while continuing to develop a simple kit and framework for creating hardware extensions.
