DIY DCC without a PC ? : LUSENET : Wiring for DCC : One Thread

Hello DCC-men Before converting my old model railroad to DCC, I would like to know if there is any possiblity to build (not buy ;-) any system (microcontroller or hard) to control DCC decoders. In effect, although I have a PC, I don't wanna use it for this (it is not on the same room), I neither want to buy an other one (even an old one ...). I would just like to have an interface from throttles to DCC decoders, so I (and my familly) will be able to use several lokos at the same time. Thanks for any suggestion

The previous question "DIY DCC" has a good discussion.

If you go to my pages and to the Links page, you will find under roll your own, all the required links to building your own DCC system, even the decoders. All software, firmware, and rquired PC drivers. Url at the end of the message.
