1 - For LinuxCNC discussion see this thread http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 37&t=33809
2 - Not directly as this particular TB6560 controller board takes input from PC printer port. You would
need to either build a converter from Raspberry PI P1 GPIO connector to printer cable or use
some kind of USB to Parallel adapter. I am actually planing on testing couple of USB2Printer
adapters once I find a converter to a D-Sub type connector.
BTW I would not recommend using this particular "Blue" TB6560 controller board, I had a lot of
trouble interfacing it with PC. Input optoisolators are not fast enough for any kind of microstepping.
You will probably have a better luck with this "Red" TB6560 controller board
