RB-100-2

  • Powerful Single Board Computer dedicated to robotics applications
  • Based on the Vortex86DX, a 32bit x86 CPU running at 1000MHz with 256MB DRAM
  • Compatible with Linux and DOS (Windows is still in testing)
  • Open Source C++ Library for Roboard’s unique I/O functions (sensors, actuators, and more)
  • A perfect solution for Microsoft Robotics Studio development
  • Tiny, measuring in at only 96 x 56 mm!

RoBoard is the heart of the Robotics making your Robby more active and intelligent. It is not just the board to control but also a truly computer based with Vortex86DX, a 32bit x86 CPU running at 1000MHz, and 256MB DRAM.
RoBoard is allowed users to install the Windows and Linux series O/S through the Micro-SD as bootable storage, which, in a way, provides users an easier way to develop robotics application.

RoBoard has the rich I/O interfaces to the servo, DC motors, sensors, gyroscope, accelerometers and other devices. Also, it has build-in the PWM up to 32 Ch, GPIO,RS-232 serial, TTL serial, RS-485,USB V2.0 x 3, A/D convert, SPI/I2C bus, Audio out & Mic in, 10/100M LAN and Mini PCI socket.

Furthermore the DC input range of RoBoard is from 6V to 24V. The dimension of it is wee as 96 x 56 mm.
