picStrip PIC Robot Controller


This is a mid-voltage capable Microchip PIC-based robot controller, featuring a socketed 1.0A dual-channel motor controller (SN754410/L293D), six available I/O, a Bluetooth-compatible serial header, as well as the standard 5-pin PIC ICSP programming port.

The included PIC 16F1825 has 8kb Flash codespace, a 32MHz internal oscillator, dual-channel PWM, hardware serial UART, and 10bit A/D inputs.   Although 8kb might sound small, keep in mind that PIC code is very efficient and small compared to an environment such as Arduino.  8kb is more than enough for maze-solving code for a line follower, or a complex mini-sumo application.

The motor controller chip has a minimum voltage of 4.5V, and the board has two independent 240mA 4.8V regulators; one for the logic and MCU supply, and one for the left-hand I/O power headers.

As with most of our boards, we don't install or include headers or plugs, since the choice will vary greatly depending on the application and personal preferences.  They are available (at a very low cost!) in the "Wires, Headers & Plugs" category.
