self-contained features, that are simply added to the main program.
The Firmware and the PC Software (SpiderScope) have 2 branches: the

latest version of the software with higher sampling rate of up to 3000
samples per seconds. The "master" branch contains the first version that
is limited to a sampling rate of 200 samples per seconds.
