Posted 22 Jul 2008 at 17:42 UTC by steve Share This

John Palmisano of the Society of Robots website writes, "I wanted to bring to your attention my product release - a microcontroller designed to be simple enough for any beginner, but powerful enough for any expert. Its built from an ATmega640, can handle 29 servos, has 3 UART + USB, built in power bus, and a built in bootloader." The Axon board has a lot of useful I/O including I2C, SPI, up to 16 ADCs, 9PWM channels, up to 18 interrupts, and 6 timers. A growing collection of software is available for the Axon. It includes 64 KB Flash, 4 KB EEPROM, and 8KB SRAM. The best part is that Axon hardware and software is licensed under the GNU GPL, which assures your right to view, modify, and reuse the technology. For more, see the Axon datasheet and Axon FAQ.
