Reverse Engineering Knitting Machine Data
This page will attempt to describe methods of figuring out the internal data representation of data saved from knitting machines.
Additional information about Brother knitting machines can be found here
All software tools mentioned here are available in this git repository.
You are encouraged to fork this repository and contribute to the tools and to the information about the data formats.
PDDemulate External Disk Drive emulator
This python script (PDDemulate.py) emulates the Brother FB100 external disk drive. The knitting machine connection for the external drive is standard asynchronous serial data, but at non-standard (non-RS-232) voltages. In order to use it, you will need to build a serial adapter, as documented on this page.
