You will need something like WinAVR:

http://winavr.sourceforge.net/

And AVRDUDE:

You can also use Firmata to do that:

What about using a task scheduler

You can find more in the WWW:

I have added scopes to the analog inputs, they seem to be quite helpful

Any help is very welcome!

Image or link to a website with the specifications?

Add a link or image, it is very hard to help you with the information provided.
9  Using Arduino / Interfacing w/ Software on the Computer / Re: Firmata Test program and FLTK GUI. on: April 21, 2013, 05:10:29 pm
Yes, you are right, you can use Firmata to get data to the computer directly from the Arduino.
10  Using Arduino / Interfacing w/ Software on the Computer / Firmata Test program and FLTK GUI. on: April 21, 2013, 04:44:37 pm
I have ported the Firmata Test program:

http://firmata.org/wiki/Main_Page
http://arduino.cc/en/Reference/Firmata

to use the FLTK GUI:

https://github.com/eetorres/fl_firmata

The FLTK is a very lightweight library that is  designed to be small and modular enough to be statically linked:

http://fltk.org/

Therefore very attractive for embedded applications.

Here a couple of screenshots:

Any help to improve it is very welcome!

You will need to add more info, photo or wiring. You can try to power the backlight with 3.3V.

Can you follow the lines on the PCB?

http://www.mitracon.ru/pdf/SAN/LC7582.pdf

On the page 3 of the above datasheet, you can see those pins.
