I would like to know how to use a microprocessor
« on: July 12, 2007, 02:00:18 PM »
I'm on a very low budget....but thats not the point. i am realizing that if i make my own microcontroller it will help me make my robot a lot easier and faster. Mi robt is using tire tracks, a cmucam+servo and some lights+servo. All i want it to do is wander. No, i don't want plans to make one, i want a very good tutorial that covers EVERYTHING from resistors to integrated circuits(and please let it be free :P) The problem with the components is that more explanations on them with help me use the IC with them in my microcontroller.
Any websites that will help are accepted and more than one (different) are encouraged.


but please.....a have a messed up computer already...no virusses :P

Why should you reinvent the wheel. Why dont you just reprogram a PIC microcontroller to your needs??
As for a tutorial goto

Check out the Roboduino, Arduino-compatible board!
