i need to know the pin configurations of usb,serial,and parallel ports of a computer.....someone make me understand about the micro processor DDR,registor,address,etc evrythig related to a micro processor..

Voltage regulators in parallel

Hi guys, i'm planning to make a robot which requires 12V,5V and 3.3V power lines regulated from a approx. 15V battery.Would it work if i used 3 voltage regulators(one from 15 to 12V,one from 15 to 5V and another one from 15 to 3.3V) connected in parallel? Or is there another way of getting 3 different regulated voltages from one power source (the 15V battery) thanks. 

Iphone controlled XMOS powered UGV robot!

Another XMOS robot I have found, made by people at University of Denver.

Demonstration of XMOS real-time ability. This test is running 8 independent tasks: gps task, ultra-sonic task, compass task, wifi receive task, wifi transmit task, pwm output task, behavior task, status led task:

Just happened to find this on youtube. Is not by me, but is a cute video none the less so I thought I would share it:

Parallel port control for a Mac

Anyone have experience with controlling a parallel (8 or more lines) output on a Mac (OS X)? I want to control my CNC machine with a parallel interface but Macs don't have parallel ports anymore. I need to find a suitable replacement, but a serial port/MCU would drastically complicate things. Please help! What hardware should I get?

Would anyone be interested in an XMOS challenge?

UPDATE:

The 9.9 version of the XMOS Development Tools is now available:
