Axon: A Microcontroller Built By Roboticists, For Roboticists

The Atmega chips really are fantastic for robotics, but sometimes the learning curve can be a bit steep. Society of Robots has taken this into consideration with their new Axon Microcontroller. Boasting the impressive Atmega 640, which has 55 total I/O pins and can control up to 29 servos, this open source microcontroller was built from the ground up with the Roboticist in mind.

Here’s a video showing just how easy it is to interface with the Axon:

    Only 55 IO pins? Pshaw! Any self respecting roboticist needs at least 100!

    No, just kidding. I would love to see a design that took advantage of all that IO. I’m curious, though, why it needs such a large cap (3300uF) on the board? I love how the headers provide GND, power, and signal all in a nice row. Good design.
