This project is based on @Radomir Dopieralski 's #Servo Controller . I did already post something about a rebuilt of this here. But in this project I want to go further: Unlike the original project I will not only build an "shield" for an Arduino pro Mini. This will be an all in one single PCB. So no long pin headers to connect the Arduino with the other PCB.
Beside all the pin headers to connect servos to the PCB there is not much on the PCB:
- Atmel ATmega MCU in MLF package (Atmega8 or Artmega168 do not know exactly yet)
- Voltage regulator for the MCU (probably 5V)
- Resonator for MCU
- Power LED
- Bypass Capacitors
The main motivation for this project was the frustration of my rebuilt when I tried to desoldering it again form the Arduino to change the resonator on the Arduino. And I do have enough space on a coming china PCB order left.
Future / To-Dos
This project is sadly on some kind of low piority now. So updates will be availible slowly. But here are some Ideas/To-Dos:
- finfish software and made some first Test with servos.
- fix Reset pin errata
- publish board files
- add schematic to project
- reset pin is not accessible for programming. Fix: solder wire directly to IC PA
