Woohoo, more bot work done
December 10, 2009
A little more done, well, another phase started anyway, on my XMOS challenge bot(s).
From the bottom up, an ATMega168 @ 8MHz (with lilypad bootloader), a 74LS14 to put the schmitt trigger thingies on the wheel encoders, and a SN754410 H-Bridge to actually run the motors. Top-right is the KA378R05 3A LDO regulator.
Now to see if it actually works.
Edit = Yes, an Arduino. It's just there for ease of testing right now. I still haven't got deep enough into the XK-1 to be able to quickly/easily knock out PWM and interrupts to test the motor controller setup. The final version will have the 7414, SN754410, and support passives on a board, but won't have the AVR chip to run them ;)
