Jape,

Seems like this should work. Based on their documentation you'd get 4 additional virtual serial ports ... which we normally get with a single usb to serial cable. Given that you can select the COM port in the SSC module should work fine with that.

Note that the only issue may be that the COM ports may change if you unplug that cable or change something on the computer. If that happens let us know and we'll see what we can do about that.

Jape,

Yes, you would have to create a module per board in the pipeline.

Check the Pololu Maestro module (different than the Pololu SSC) which is probably the one you were looking at. That supports up to 24.

However, that one may not connect to multiple boards and may incur a delay in us updating that module if you decide to go that direction. So if you do decide on that board then let us know in advance.

You have the right idea on the 1D array. Just use

servo:0
servo:1
servo:2

where you put the variables in the SSC dialog etc. instead of

servo(0)

but the effect is the same.
