RoboVero™ is a standalone NXP LPC1769 microcontroller for robotics applications. It manages the CortexM3 from an onboard Overo COM, or from an external host on the HubCommander™ interface. The RoboVero has onboard sensors, buttons, LEDs, USB Hub, header pins for GPIO, CAN, I2C, SPI, UART, PWM, and A/D.
Once you have tested the board, you may use Geppetto online to design and customize a board like RoboVero for your own project.
This standalone LPC1769 microcontroller board for robotics applications has onboard sensors, buttons, and LEDs. Interfacing with an Overo-series COM, RoboVero supports Caspa-series cameras and high-level software applications.
It also features numerous header pins for GPIO/CAN/I2C/SPI/UART/PWM and analog signals, being well-suited to motor control applications.
Manage the Cortex-M3 from the onboard Overo COM or from an external USB interface using our very own HubCommander™ interface.
