Interface to a microcontroller that supports the Firmata protocol.
The device can be connected via a serial port or Bluetooth low energy (BLE). If both serial_port and bluetooth_local_name are omitted, MWorks looks for a single, connected serial device. If it finds one, it assumes it to be the desired Firmata device and attempts to connect.
If the Firmata device is connected via a serial port, this parameter specifies the filesystem path that represents the serial port
If the Firmata device is connected via Bluetooth low energy, this parameter specifies its local name
Sampling interval for analog inputs. Must be a whole number of milliseconds.
YES, the device will start I/O automatically (as if by an
implicit Start IO Device action) when the experiment starts running.
Note: Device I/O will always stop automatically when the experiment stops running, irrespective of this setting.
Alternative device to use if this one fails to initialize (e.g. because the required hardware is not available). If
#allowAltFailover is set to 0 or false, this parameter is ignored.
