Channel Breakout, Power Breakout Boards

 

Power Breakout Board, comes with mosfet polarity protection. No onboard regulator, intended for projects that have a dedicated high wattage supply already (no puny 7805).

 

 

Channel breakout board, supports up to 16 ports (Supports servos too), and powered by the connector on the right hand side, therefore you can power them off their own dedicated supply.

Your most lethal component in your work room

So today I recieved my huge capacitor, 10,000UF @ 450VDC, this thing is freaking huge. I mean it's like I'm overcompensating for something... Anyways, what is the most dangerous component you own? This is probably it, as it has enough power to remove limbs. Heres a picture too.

30 Amp Dual motor Driver, Krumtroller Order requests

The Krumtroller has been generating alot of interests lately, and Ive been working on a 2nd revision of the board. It's cheaper than the other boards, because I'm not looking for profit first, I'm far more interested in helping out LMR'ers and further their projects. Therefore, I am offering the Dual Motor Driver, featuring Current sensing, PWM control and bidirectional motor control for Just 50 dollars. This board can handle 30 amps and Fits under 70mm square, and has standardized mounting holes so you can mount any LGA775 compatable cooler for the board.

LMR series of PCB's

I think that LMR should have its own series of circuit boards, with the designs open source for all LMR'ians to use. Heres a couple ideas for PCB's:

Sends GPS coordinates, buttons, LED's, LCD, buttons, LED's, and more buttons.
Robots with GPS waypoints can develop a list of waypoints, and with more complex robotic systems this can be tricky to manage. VStack (vertical stack, I don't know … Read more
This is a simple Continuous Rotation Sonar Sensor, handy because it can sense in a complete 360 (excluding behind it, aka robot). I plan to mount two of these, one … Read more

Supersonic Golf Ball

Well, good news everybody! I have managed to get a team of people together that are willing to pool resources together for construction of a high energy supersonic Golf Ball cannon, complete with remote electrical control and operation. The Cannon will feature complete autonomous reloading of the barrel. I will have to create large quantites of gun cotton, otherwise known as nitrocellulose. Nitrocellulose has been used as a propellant and explosive for many years.
