SoR annoucement: microcontroller product
As many of you have realized, I have not really been happy with any of the microcontrollers available on the market. They are all missing something . . .
So I am developing a microcontroller for SoR to sell (called the Axon), with revenue going to further develop/grow the SoR website. Ive done a manufacturing run and it mostly works, but Im working out the final bugs and documentation. Ive been working hard on this for the last ~6 months, and it should be ready within a month or two from now for shipment.
For those who have used the Arduino, it will basically be the Arduino x 3 (in features, support, and cost). Yet it will be smaller and lighter, too.
A few teaser features:
built in USB
3 additional UART (for camera, wireless, hyperterminal, etc)
no programmer required
control up to 40 servos (building a hexapod/biped, anyone?)
has a power bus
designed for the intermediate/expert builder, simple enough for a beginner
-actually, much much easier than the $50 Robot
full support, easy to use software/code
RoHS compliant (environmentally friendly, no lead, etc)
Price will be between $100 and $150. Send me an IM if you want to reserve one (no money down) so I can better judge how many to initially make. Those who reserve for the first produced limited batch will get ~20% off.
