If you want to build your own procedure trainer or fully fledged home cockpit, the hardware interface is the core of all. Somehow, you need to connect all the buttons and lamps to your computer. Here is a list of some suppliers:


Opencockpits, Spain
Wide range of interface cards plus lots of other hardware.
Drivers: Official drivers for Windows only. Driver development for other platforms is not desired - Opencockpits does not provide hardware communication SDK. No Flightgear implementation yet.

Unknown location

Very nice USB HID hardware interfaces.
Drivers: None required. Interfaces register as USB joystick/keyboard at the computer. The interfaces are programmed with a MSWIN software with keycodes and/or macros. For using the interface NO software is necessary. The whole config is stored on the interface itself!
