Cupcake 3D - printing wheel
Printing wheels is quite common among users of Cupcake and RepRap clones. This movie shows the whole process from printing raft to finishing production.  Cupcake makes exsperimenting with robotics a whole new story. ABS is really robust material great for printing parts, enclosures etc. $("#tVfjSKGzOtM").youTubeEmbed({video:"www.youtube.com/watch?v=tVfjSKGzOtM&ap=%2526fmt%3D22&hd=1",progressBar: true});

ARMBra!nz
One of my latest projects taking longer than it should to complete. Still missing connection from ARM to FPGA. The board will feature: AT91RM9200 ARM with Micron 32MB SDRAM Xilinx Spartan IIE XC2S150 150k Gates FPGA ATmega32 for easy PWM and board supervision microSD Card slot SD Card slot JTAG Connectors for FPGA and ARM Switching power supplies Standard R/C Servo connectors interfacing to FPGA USB Host USB Client Orginally it was supposed to have two CMOS VGA Cameras interfaced to FPGA but later studing stereoscopic algoritms I came ...

SWBStick - introduction
SWBStick project was created as a base for SWB (SWTC) courses which took place of TEC. Main goal of SWB is to familiarise students with real life, current trends in electronics. We choose practical knowledge instead of pure theory. Device has size of typical USB pen drive. Main part is Atmel ATmega32 micro controller running at 18.432MHz.  To increase ergonomics the device can be programmed with BASCOM-AVR or Arduino. To find COM port name please go to "Device Manager" and expand "Ports (COM & LPT)" then look for Silabs CP2102 ...

New toy – ModuBra!nz controller
This design is intended for more powerful robots. I need this to interact with NokiBot. But have experimented with VaioBot and prove that ModuBra!nz is very capable controller. It features: I2C at TTL and LVTLL levels (5V & 3.3V) SPI at LVTTL integrated footprint for Nordic nRF2401 RF-24G Transceiver Modular dual H-Bridge (4A & 8A) 8 Outputs for RC Servos with power cut off 8 ADC Inputs connector for Serial / Bluetooth / RS485 Integrated USB for Bootloader and communication Encoder inputs Also with ModuBra!nz there are libraries for BASCOM for ...
