  • Digilent chipKIT Max32 Arduino Compatible Microcontroller
    Fast, Inexpensive and worth it!
    Review by Alexander
    It was a great alternative to the Arduino DUE. Offers many io ports for large electronic projects, easy to use architecture and lots of memory and speed for shear number crunching!

  • Netduino Mini .NET Microcontroller
    Best choice for small formfactor equipment
    Review by Anatoliy
    We use for transfer sensors data (IR, Accellerometer, Ultrasonic) to PC in Fitness and Sport area - very small form factor is usefully for atletes.
    .NET Micro Framework very helpfuly, because building time is short.

Professional Development Platforms

Posted on January 23, 2012

By Coleman Benson & filled under Robotics Projects & Kits.

Professional Development Platforms   Professional development platforms are ideally suited to higher level education and research institutions. Increasingly, educational and research institutions are looking past the hardware to focus solely on robot intelligence. Professional platforms are essentially mobile computers, and have most of the components you would find in a standard PC (including video output, [...]

... encoders will be needed, since even two supposedly identical motors from the same manufacturer have subtle differences. Do I need a PWM pin on my microcontroller for each DC motor I want to control? You really only need one dual motor controller. Why do you have both a Raspberry Pi and a laptop? ...

... a low-to-high state change. Given these thresholds, it's not possible to measure the R/C PWM signal directly. Instead, we would recommend using a microcontroller with interrupts. There's some sample code here that measures R/C PWM signals on pins D2-D5 on an Arduino: * https://code.google.com/p/arisecar/source/browse/loco/RcRead.ino?repo=arduinos ...

Welcome to our forums! Yes, the T'Rex motor controller will work well with your motors. It actually already contains an Arduino-based microcontroller, so you might not even need a separate Arduino board. The T'Rex also has a connector for this bluetooth module so you could control it directly ...

Well, the BotBoarduino is in fact an Arduino compatible microcontroller.
It is used just like an Arduino Duemilanove but has more connections and features on-board.

BTW: Thanks, those pictures are from my design.. lol
