What microcontrollers are very simialer to the CERBELLUM MCU?
« on: November 07, 2008, 01:56:07 PM »
I want to make a robot just like Stampy, only using a smaller servo for the panning and 2 motors with an L293D, I think I will use a Picaxe 28x1, but then I would have to make my own code, which is the hardest thing for me, so is there any MCU just like the cerebellum that uses the same logic/language?

Well, the $50 Robot has Stampy code that you can use (see the sharp IR upgrade).

As for a microcontroller similar to the Cerebellum, I designed my Axon based off of it.

For your motor controller, use the PWM code available.

Can I use the $50 Robot's Microcontroller to make my own Stampy?

Being as the Cerebellum is not sold anymore, I would like to use my $50 robot's MCU to make it, I plan on adding an L293D Motor Controller on the board for the drive motors, will this work? Will I need to alter my board in any way, (will not be using a seperate power supply for motor, like the 50 dollar robot did for servos)

Search the forum for using PWM. Also, look at AVRlib PWM examples.
