UPDATE: Added Schematic, Top Layer PCB, Bottom Layer PCB, and both Top, Bottom PCB images
When I finished the "RevIO" - an Arduino Clone
that has the different way of exposing pins usage. I decided to go further to the next project. To test my "RevIO" board that it could do the bigger task than just blinking the LED!
I modified the Wired Robotic Arm Edge
to Wireless controlled, using my "RevIO" and DIY Three-Motor Driver ICs PCB together with XBee Series 1 module.
This instructables introduces the way I constructed Three-Motor Driver ICs PCB from scratch. Then using it as the "piggy back" on my "RevIO" Board.
To control the Robotic Arm, I designed the GUI (Graphical User Interface) with the Processing on the PC and Arduino sketch for driving the motors.
I also added the 6-pin socket as an alternative to use Bluetooth module (Sparkfun's Bluetooth Modem - Blue SMiRF Silver
, or Bluetooth Modem - Blue SMIRF Gold
Again I am going to use the same presentation method as Build "The RevIO" (Arduino Clone) My Way
, to build the board using the graphical illustrations, together with the photos of actual build of the board.
