    Hi

    Is there a device called POC "programmable output control" which takes many inputs and has few outputs and a socket which plus to your laptop and with a software, you can control what output to send and make some functions and a like to control the output based on the input?

    I could not dig out any thing from google.

    thanks

    Is it possible that what you are referring to is a Programmable Logic Controller?

    Yes, PLCs and microcontrollers are the first things in my mind. Also, FPGAs are another possible solution.

    The USB Bitwhacker might fit the description.
