Axon I/II with Arduino IDE
« on: March 04, 2018, 01:55:43 AM »
Hey everyone,

I recently found a first gen Axon and Axon II when I was doing a cleanup, I'm working on an animatronic project and would love to use the Axon to drive a heap of servos.

Just wondering if anyone has ported it to the Arduino IDE? I've been doing a bunch of programming in that recently and it would be great to not have to run a different toolchain.

I've just found the MegaCore project

https://github.com/MCUdude/MegaCore
https://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=386733

If I can get it working in the next couple of days I'll post more info.

The Axon uses the ATmega640, which is exactly the same as the ATmega2560 used in the Arduino Mega. The one difference is the 2560 has more memory. If you can get 640 compatible software, you are good to go.
