EHX Stereo Memory Man Hazarai preset footswitch?
« on: July 21, 2011, 11:42:23 AM »
I'd like to make an external footswitch to scroll through presets in the Hazarai.
The pedal uses a rotary encoder (2 pin) to scroll through the presets. I imagine there's a decoder somewhere that outputs a CW pulse and a CCW pulse. I've actually traced a bit that's near (physically) to the encoder. There's an IC and three capacitors that I can see (besides two 10k resistors). The marking on the IC is either PFN1 or PFNI.
I can't remove the board, thus I only see one side of the board.

Idle voltages (without rotating the encoder):

Pin 1: -6.17v
Pin 2: 6.35v
Pin 3 : -3.35v
Pin 4: ground
Pin 5: 3V


The encoder and the said chip (U11, caps are C31,32 and 33) are located in the top left corner.

Any hints?
I can't find any information on this IC. I was hoping it was some kind of flipflop. I'm guessing it would make things easier :)

first of all: I don't understand digital things at all.
but my guess is that those 2 encoder pin must connect to something else too. or does it work like that already??
Only those who attempt the absurd will achieve the impossible.

the side fo the board you can see with the two 10k resistors is probably just the pulldown resistors. encoders tend to need those.
