The Encephalon Of The Gopigo Board Is An Atmega328 Microcontroller - Usage 8

- July 27, 2018
Having assembled the torso of the GoPiGo Robot Car, it is at ane time a proficient chance to acquire to a greater extent than nearly the encephalon (CPU) controlling Dexter Industries' GoPiGo board, which is an ATMEGA328 microcontroller.
Micro-controllers part real much similar computers sending, receiving too executing commands that are stored inwards the microcontroller's flash memory. The to a greater extent than memory, the to a greater extent than lines of commands you lot tin store too the ATMEGA328 microcontroller has built-in 32KB flash retentiveness too 2KB SRAM (static random-access memory) to assistance the CPU recollect commands faster.

Thanks to the ATMEGA328 microcontroller, which features series interface, 23 GPIOS too SPI series port, the GoPiGo board tin communicate amongst figurer hardware too software. That's where a unmarried board figurer similar the Raspberry Pi comes inwards handy beingness the size of a palm. The Raspberry Pi fits nicely on last on of the GoPiGo board, connecting amongst ane roughly other via I2C interface too enabling the communication of commands to the GoPiGo's encephalon (the ATMEGA328 microcontroller).
The GoPiGo board features 3 headers: Servo Header, Raspberry Pi Header too Internet access provider Header. The board likewise features Raspberry Pi prototyping pins, Level Conversion fleck too TB6612FNG motor controller, which allows you lot command ii DC motors independently cast each other.

There are several analog too digital ports on the GoPiGo board for connecting sensors similar temperature, accelerometer too GPS. On the dorsum of the board is where the microcontroller is located, every bit good every bit ii Optical Encoders amongst xviii pulse counts per rotation which assistance the GoPiGo deed exactly inwards a lead line.
Raspberry Pi Model B+
The GoPiGo board operates amongst voltages betwixt 7V too 12V; thence the battery pack carrying viii 1.5V batteries to ability both motors, ultrasonic sensor, servo too Raspberry Pi (the Raspberry Pi itself uses 3.3V).
