I want to introduce you to the project RoboCraft.ru and our first product CraftDuino
The resource itself RoboCraft.ru created to reflect the information of our activities in the field of robotics. Yes, yes — we want to make robots
First, it's terribly interesting and fun
Secondly, I am sure that in the near future robots will make a qualitative and quantitative leap in its development and soon robots will be an integral part of our daily life. They will work with us. Accompany us on the job. Help us in business.
But not to buy robots labeled "Made in Japan / China" we have started this project
However, if you only knew — with what ideas it all started, how many different projects developed and discarded.
This is not another social network to run — here is a work in the real world and the ordering party defective or not those components — Ctrl-Z does not help
At the moment, we have developed and released a universal fee CraftDuino — our version is fully Arduino-compatible board.
If you've never heard of Arduino — I ask in wikipedia.
or read any of the articles
Thus, our board CraftDuino — fully Arduino-compatible — ie can work with it using the Arduino IDE and plug expansion board — shyldy (Shields) Arduin.
On board is a board CraftDuino microcontroller ATmega168:
- Clock rate of 16 MHz
- 16 KB program memory
- 1 KB of RAM (RAM)
- 512 bytes of non-volatile memory (EEPROM)
For details and differences from the Arduino can be found here (PDF)
CraftDuino — Is a complete unit and does not require additional hardware (switches).
Board uses the free software — Arduino IDE, which runs on Windows, Linux, MacOS X, and other operating systems (as implemented on the platform of Java).
Arduino IDE program is easy to use and self programming is done in C + +, so the tool can be extended with the help of C + + libraries.
Camo unit, as well as all the software is completely open — available specifications, wiring diagrams, source code.
Get started is very simple — if you have fee — you just have to download the Arduino IDE, connect the card to the computer through the USB-cable type AB (which connect the printer to the PC.)
After connecting and installing the drivers (go in the Arduino IDE) in your system will be an additional COM-port (USB Serial Port). And you can start coding!
Fee CraftDuino — This is the first step in the vast world of embedded systems (embedded system).
Automation, home automation and robotics — it becomes very easy and affordable!
Perhaps now you have no idea what you want to do on this platform, but once you start to explore its possibilities — such ideas are sure you will!
Possible applications CraftDuino limited only by your imagination!
Look at how many projects implemented in Arduino! Now it's available to you!
The vast world of fun electronics and robotics open in front of you.
