8051 Development Board with ADC0809 for Robotics

Easy to use 8051 development board with 8 channel ADC0808/09 and L293D based Motor control section.The 8051 board can be easily programmed through USB and no external programmer is required.The board has 7 external ADC channels and can control two DC motors.

The board is ideal for learning Robotics and Embedded system development using 8051.

Make Your Own MSP430 Launchpad based Robot

Hi Guys & Gals welcome to my MSP430 based robot building tutorial.
This tutorial serves as a short introduction to Robotics using MSP430 microcontroller and Launchpad development board from TI.Here we will build a small differential powered robot from scratch using MSP430G2553 controller and L293D motor control chip.MSP430G2553 is an extremely cheap low power that comes along with the Launchpad microcontroller kit from Texas Instruments(
MSP-EXP430G2), They usually provide two extra controllers along with the launchpad development board.

MSP430G2553 Launchpad controlled robot build using motor control booster pack

This tutorial follows a DIY ethic and can be assembled easily with things lying around in your garage, only exception is the Launchpad micro controller kit which you have to purchase from Texas instruments.The Frame of the robot is constructed from cardboard and the circuit is assembled on a general purpose PCB using a mixture of through hole and SMD components (mostly resistors and capacitors) .In case you are not comfortable with SMD you can use through hole components.

In case you dont want to build the whole thing you can purchase the shield containing all the electronics parts ( except MSP430) which you can plug over your MSP430 Launchpad development board from TI.The Shield can be purchased from here.
