is this a good controler for a <8inch long robot, running modified continual running servo's (3 wire futaba type) and between 2-5 sensors?
how hard is it going to be to program, and is the programing a major language ( i know vbasic and want to learn somthing more aplicable to robotics)
are their any tuts online for learning C? i have the time and would like to be able to code myself.
or will i need http://www.pololu.com/products/pololu/0120/
you would no longer have serial to output sensor data to hyperterminal
is their a way to make an amperage cut off, to prevent it from colecting over howevermany amps?
A, pray that i dont stall and pray that if i do, nothing bad happens.
B, find a way to limit current to, say, 1A per motor, how do i limit to 1 amp (or any other amount) although, i could find a 130can motor that only draws 1 amp max...?
edit, it says for the chip that ground pin flow out per channel is 1.0 amps, dose that mean each motor is limited to 1 amp? also, what would happeb if i stacked the mosfets ( wired them in paralel) would it give me 2A on each circut?
nvm, its looking like im going to need a motor controler, how many analog points will http://www.pololu.com/products/pololu/0120/ take up, and how many will be left for me to use for sensors,, also, were do i find a 6pin programmer, all the ones ive seen are like, iether 10 or 12
i can use that H-bridge and still have sensor imput
how many sensors?
what do all of these things ( pd1, pc1, pb1) meen
ok, how do I use the friction estemation ( conservitivly 0.8 ) to calculate the force, I dont understand the formulas
for force i have 2 lbs of force per motor, and the robot is gunna weigh less than 1 pound. so it should be absolutly fine, right?
this orangutang is confusing me bad
this orangutang is confusing me bad, i might just go with a didgilente mini con, with a 2 A h-bridge and a jtag3 to serial programmer. now, are they going to work together?? the baby Orang was way to confusing, this seems to be more modular..also, i am right in thinking that the 2 pin conectors are for sensors? and the ground goes to the main ground?https://www.digilentinc.com/Products/Detail.cfm?Prod=PMOD-OD1&Nav1=Products&Nav2=Peripheralhttps://www.digilentinc.com/Products/Detail.cfm?Prod=MINICON&Nav1=Products&Nav2=Embedded
