« on: January 10, 2008, 04:52:32 PM »
ok well im doing my second robot now....$50 robot and im really low on money and i have two mechanno motors lying around are they all the same voltage cuz one has smaller wires than the other...are they all the same? and if so what voltage?
ps: if anyone has an exact part list for the $50 robot plzz post it or a link...i cant seem to find all the parts...
and for the mocrocontroller do i need that little base thing if so where in aus can i get it...

smaller wires? shorter or thinner?

Also please post pics or part numbers, that will help us find out the voltage ratings!

if by the little base thing you mean the prototyping board, you can find it in any jaycar store (actually, they have most of the stuff)

you don't need the DIP socket (the little base thing) but it usefull incase you shock the Atmega chip

yeah it's a microcontroller the dip socket is what you plug the microcontroller into. You can get the dip socket at digikey I reccomend you get 1.

you answered your own question

if atmega=use socket

and atmega=microcontroller

than microcontroller=use socket

speaking of H bridges....

where can I get a DIP H bridge as a free sample,  i just need one  that can handle  2- 5 amps

whats cool is that this time when I sample an IC ,  I might actually buy in bulk later on for my new project which might be made into a kit .... **secret **  ;)

hmm why would you want a free sample when theyre like $1:50? go to www.futurlec.com if you mean n hbridge that will fit into a dip socket check the $40 robot and get the one from ^^^^^^^^^^^^^

IDK about an hridge. look aroudn some sample sites for motor drivers. and make sure they're DIP before ordering
