How To Build
The Axon II is a microcontroller
designed by and for the robotics hobbyist.

The Axon II was developed for robots that go beyond the basics. With the Axon II,
you will no longer need to worry about not having enough I/O as it has 58
for you to use. You will never be wanting of UART,
as there are 3 directly available, with a 4th used
for a USB connection directly to your PC. A total of 16 ADC ports for all of your sensors.
A bootloader is pre-installed so no hardware programmer is needed. Lastly, extensive source code and tutorials
have been developed to make it easy enough for a beginner yet still powerful enough for an expert.
More specifically, the Axon II is the best microcontroller on the market for multi-limbed
robots such as bipeds, spiders, and robot arms.
Unlike many other robot microcontrollers on the market, no additional messy breadboard wiring or
expensive shields are required to make your robot.
It's 100% plug-n-play - no external power buses required to plug in servos or sensors,
literally taking minutes to set up.
The Axon II uses the powerful ATmega640 as its processor, which has typically 4x more
memory than other controllers on the market (see specifications below).
Lastly, at 34 grams (a typical 9V battery weighs 40g), the Axon II is the smallest and
lightest of any other comparable full-featured microcontroller on the market.
NO soldering or assembly required!
Works right out of the box, with multiple working demo programs pre-installed.
Full personalized support
by the Axon II creator and SoR author himself! Stuck? Post a question in the
robot forum and
read previous Axon II questions
- no question is left unresolved. I will be continually adding
easy to use software to support all your favorite robot hardware. This is all
included in the price. Remember to read the FAQ first before asking!!!
Free access to plug-n-play SoR Scope,
software that converts your Axon II into a 16 channel oscilloscope. Who wants to spend hundreds or thousands
on a clunky oscilloscope anyway? No programming necessary.
For detailed information, please refer to the Axon II Datasheet.
