Why use a Mega when the DUE is out now? The DUE has oodles of ram, as well as having a native CAN bus. It'd make an awesome ECM.

 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I once bought an engine without original ECU unit at all. So i did have choice to find original ecu or bring own solution for that, and i did choose later option.

So here is it, running fine on test bench:

This engine (Audi 5cylinder TDI) has Bosch VP37 injection pump on it. I had to fully reverse engineer all controlling parameters for it.

Configuration can be done over USB real time (ANSI/VT102 text-mode user interface), there is also Debugging and Monitor software written in processing which includes meters display, data logging and of cource - terminal emulator for to connect the boards UI.

Simple answer: The ATmega chip is like $4?

Are you still playing with all this?

I am involved with another DIY ECU project and I wonder if you have the time to help us add diesel support, at least by trying our board & code on your test engine?
