  • MCU 1.09:Changes encoder operation to allow the K-Pod to buffer encoder counts to the K3. This helps the K3 and K-Pod remain in sync. Adds a power-on feature: if the F3 button is held during power up the K-Pod encoder uses a divide by 4 scaling factor. Adds configuration command to K-Pod USB interface.
