#184704 - One step at a time
Responding to: ???'s previous message
Jacob Drake said:
Which kit do you think is the best for learning how to make a robotics system with a set of sensors and a few outputs?

You need to learn principles first - then move on to specific applications to apply what you have learned.

So you just need a board to get you started with the basics:

  • Digital inputs - switches, etc;
  • Digital outputs - LEDs, etc;
  • Analogue inputs & outputs;
  • Serial communication - UART, I2C, SPI;
  • Timers, PWM, etc

    How to write programs to internal memory with RS232???      Jacob Drake      11/11/11 00:56      
       What processor      Per Westermark      11/11/11 01:05      
          And the winner is...      Jacob Drake      11/11/11 11:13      
             fuggetabutit        Erik Malund      11/11/11 11:42      
                Hmmmmmm      Jacob Drake      11/11/11 11:53      
                   sure there is      Erik Malund      11/11/11 12:15      
                   Costly failure      Per Westermark      11/11/11 12:20      
                      Well, the UV thing confuses me...      Jacob Drake      11/11/11 12:26      
                         well, then ....      Erik Malund      11/11/11 12:56      
                         OTP or mask-programmed      Per Westermark      11/11/11 13:00      
                         Isn't that a clue?      Richard Erlacher      11/11/11 14:09      
                      Wrong! It won't work with THIS part!      Richard Erlacher      11/11/11 14:08      
                         8032      Per Westermark      11/11/11 14:39      
                            Actually ...      Richard Erlacher      11/11/11 23:50      
                               What situation would that be?        Per Westermark      11/12/11 05:25      
                                  I think you're confusing two different parts.      Richard Erlacher      11/13/11 01:09      
                               There's the thing!      Andy Neil      11/12/11 05:37      
                                  It all depends on what you mean by experienced.      Jacob Drake      11/12/11 12:54      
                                     RE: It all depends on what you mean by, "experienced"      Andy Neil      11/12/11 13:03      
                                        "Level" is such a relative term      Jacob Drake      11/12/11 17:35      
                                  That's the reason      Richard Erlacher      11/13/11 01:15      
                            8032?      Jacob Drake      11/12/11 00:47      
                               Yes - but is it worth it?      Andy Neil      11/12/11 04:30      
                               It's a long, circuitous path ...      Richard Erlacher      11/13/11 01:24      
                         I have an external UV EPROM      Jacob Drake      11/12/11 00:38      
                            If you don't know that, ...      Andy Neil      11/12/11 04:35      
             Unless you have specific interest in vintage electronics ...      Andy Neil      11/11/11 13:13      
                So...I've made a decision..sorta      Jacob Drake      11/12/11 23:51      
                   One step at a time      Andy Neil      11/13/11 00:21      
                      Any specific one though?      Jacob Drake      11/13/11 00:28      
                         This one?      Andy Neil      11/13/11 01:04      
             Not this one!        Richard Erlacher      11/11/11 13:55      
                Hmmm, a goal?      Jacob Drake      11/12/11 00:44      
                   Wrong road!      Andy Neil      11/12/11 05:07      
                      Regarding knowledge of electronics.      Jacob Drake      11/12/11 12:57      
                         RE: "fourth grade"      Andy Neil      11/12/11 13:10

                         out of sheer nostalgia      Erik Malund      11/12/11 16:44      
                         It might, in fact, be a good thing to go back farther      Richard Erlacher      11/13/11 01:37      
                            Interesting      Jacob Drake      11/14/11 00:15      
                               You need to know much more about two things ...      Richard Erlacher      11/14/11 12:51
