What is Ginger ? Ginger is yet another physical computing platform, which is similar to gainer (http://gainer.cc). The goal of project is to develop PC Platform
Ginger makes use of avr-usb (http://www.obdev.at/avrusb/) for the implementation of USB interface. Thanks to avr-usb, no external USB-serial bridge chip is required to interface host PC, and this makes ginger hardware simple. ATmega88 is chosen because it is available in AKIZUKI-denshi, where many electric parts are sold in bargain price.(We love the store).
In Macintosh platforms, you don’t need to install software drivers, as the device is recognized as /dev/cu.usbmodem*. In Windows, please use ginger.inf provided with source code in tarball.
