encoder positioning disks
Keith Causey email (remove spam text)
If you can live with slots instead of clear plastic then cannabilize a
mouse. There are two little encoder disks in each one. There are also all
the associated optoelectronics. Actually there's a reader/controller in
there too. It's probably easy to figure out what it's doing and the current
requirments are miniscule. If you still want to roll your own Microchip has
an application note on how to use a PIC for a mouse controller which
contains all the subroutines. That can be stripped down to what you need.
Good luck - Keith Causey
