Source code required:

Please include an (temporary) URL pointing to the source code,

We wish to review your source code, even if it is not
functional, to catch potential legal issues early.

For example, to release your program properly under the GPL you
must include a copyright notice and statement permitting copying
at the beginning of every file of source code. This is
explained in <http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-howto.html>. Our
review would help catch potential omissions such as these.

  • Type: Programs
  • License: GNU General Public License V3 or later


FreeS88 is an opensource implementation of an S88 bus decoder. For model railways, the S88 bus is used to feedback sensor states from the layout to a digital central (in our case a PC with USB port which runs a software implemented central such as Rocrail)

Initially, the code makes an Arduino board a S88 bus decoder which emulates the HSI protocol. Later extensions to other boards are welcome. Initially, the code emulates a HSI88 Interface, and has been run successfully with Rocrail.
