Reverse engineering a scoreboard data protocol (Nevco MPC-5)
March 3rd, 2017
I have decoded the Daktronics scoreboard signal in the past, but this time its a Nevco MPC-5 multipurpose controller. This was considerably more difficult to reverse engineer for several reasons, for one it runs a non-standard ~260KHz signal and is also over a coaxial cable. In the end, with some circuitry, I managed to successfully decode it and extract the clock information. Read...
