**Abstract:** micro-OSC (uOSC) is a high-performance multi-function firmware for low-cost microprocessors that interfaces sensor acquisition and control functions to a host computer using the Open Sound Control (OSC) protocol over a class-compliant USB-serial connection. The software design incorporates considerations specifically related to requirements of musical interfaces such as time-accurate sampling and reconstruction in a real-time interactive context. Other features of note include; rewritable unique device id, floating point normalized analog conversions, persistent device state store/recall, OSC "wildcard" dispatching, clock synchronization, support for regulated 3.3v sensors, and other special hardware functions. uOSC runs on multiple platforms featuring the Microchip PIC18F USB series processor, starting at $25 US retail from internet retailers.

In this presentation I will show some details about the design of the uOSC software, the hardware it runs on, performance metrics for a device of this type, and a demo of it running on a tiny prototype board. I will bring and/or describe some instruments and other sensoriffic gadgets powered by uOSC including the MagIMU, Tablo, Kalimba, and Hyperdrum.
