50$ robot brain
« on: December 28, 2007, 07:32:29 AM »
i,m trying to make the 50$ robot...but here in my country, its hard to find the AVR...i survey around to find any AVR or programmer but failed to find it....here, in my country,malaysia...lots of electronics project is using the Microchip PIC...the programmer can be easily found...and the PIC can be obtain as sample...

so i was wondering, can i use the PIC microchip as the brain for the 50$ robot ???...and what is the suitable PIC type i can use...i want at least 6 inputs and 4 output...for the sensor and motors.

thank you ;D

Which province you live in?

If you live in Johor, its a quick drive into Singapore. Or you can just order it online from sg instead:
http://www.roboworld.com.sg/
http://www.sgbotic.com/
Digikey ships to sg
(I never had problems crossing the border, but then again I have an american passport . . .)

This is good avr based microcontrollers that ship to malaysia:
http://www.gumstix.com/

ships to malaysia:
http://www.active-robots.com

I think this ships to malaysia:
http://www.sparkfun.com
http://www.mouser.com

feel free to browse here for more shipping options:

admin has pretty much covered the bases. (as usual)

sparkfun has the arduino with an atmega168 for $34
they're out of stock on regular atmega168
