Hi, I'm new to microcontrollers.
I was thinking of creating hexapod spider robot with at least 12 servos on it (digital or analog-not sure). I have no idea what microcontroller I should buy... I don't want to create any scripts on C or others, compile them an putting on flash memory of microcontroller. -> all I want is direct "live" control, without any sensors, programming to flash memory and such. I do NOT need autonomous robot.
I did read this http://www.societyofrobots.com/robot_parts_list_microcontrollers.shtml
but I just want to control 12 servos via keyboard on PC (wirelessly), so I don't whant to pay extra money for flash memory on servo controller and other features I won't need...
Does any microcontroller have option for programming to flash? Is it non-separable? What specs/features should I search for a "simple" microcontroller.
By the way, is there any difference between "servo controller" and "microcontroller" terms?
