Romeo-All in one Arduino Controller with Motor Driver

Vendor's Description: 

The DFRobot Romeo All-in-one Microcontroller is based on the ATMega168 20AU chip and is designed as an extension of the basic Arduino board. The DFRobot Romeo All-in-one Microcontroller includes both female pin headers for each pin and standard 3-pin connections, allowing you to easily connect sensors and other 3-wire devices. The board also includes an L298 Motor driver, allowing you to drive two DC motors between 7-12V and <1A each.

It is fully compatible with Arduino IDE. To program the Romeo, select Arduino Nano or Dumilnove will be fine.

• Based on Atmega168-20AU
• 6 push buttons
• 14 Digital I/O (pins 0 to 13) 8 Analog I/O (pins 0 to 7)
• PWM pins: 3, 55, 6, 9, 10, 11 3.3V, 5V, AREF and GND pins
• USB interface ISP headers
• 3 Different power options
• Romeo supply voltage: 7-12V Srew terminals for motor supply

Why only the 168? A couple of bucks more and you get the 328...

Otherwise, a nice and interesting board. :)

About time a board like this came out.

Why don't you make a project like the "start here" robot with this? We can feature it in the top menu!

Will do it together with A4WD mobile platform and Bluetooth.
The Romeo has been evolved.  It is upgraded to 328P version which has double memory size. 

It can support upto 2A each way.  As there are no heat sink fitted, with 2A current, it will make the chip quite warm.  

 But for short time usage, it should be no problem at all. 

 I suggest that you buy Romeo as it is relatively cheaper, and compared with traditional duemilanove, it has extra 2 analog input.   

Just curious, is this set up so you can plug a servo in?
