An update on the status.The 3rd prototype has been finished and tested. Only minor issues found, and all have been corrected. SPI has also been added (brought the SS pin out), as requested.Next steps . . . I will now do a 4th prototype, which will basically be a short manufacturing run to make sure I didn't do anything dumb before spending thousands on a full run.I should have the pricing finalized within a month, and the product in your hands within two months tops.
Does that offer for ~20% discount still hold for the first production run?
Would you say it is as easy to use as a Basic Stamp?
Is the usb for programming only or can I use it to communicate with the controller?
Also how hard will it be to send stuff to the controller from the PC side.
Will the controller be able to output pwm for motor control?
I sometimes call it the 'stupid tax' . . . every stupid mistake you make, you pay for it in either $ or pain
Total weight is 34 grams (by comparison, a 9V battery is 40 grams).Dimensions are now posted here:http://www.societyofrobots.com/axon/images/axon_dimensions_large.pngThe screw holes are 4-40.
I'm guessing the dimensions are in inches? just thought i'll check as i don't want to do a "mars lander" so i multiply by 25.4 for real numbers
And a side note . . . I'm working with Surveyor Corp to integrate their robot camera with the Axon - that means you can have advanced robot vision by calling just one or two lines of code. I hope you like
Have you thought of providing a FreeRTOS.org solution as well?
After you are done with Axon, you should make a lesser version for those of us who don't have $150.
QuoteWill there also be a Axon lite version? Just half of everything, 8 ADCs, 20 outputs, ...and half of the priceNope. The market is flooded with beginner boards already. I wanted to make a board for those who want more features than a beginner board. The main reason I designed this board is because I needed these features but no board on the market offered them. These additional features is why the price is $100+
