I just got in the latest batch of PCBs for my Kilroy Development board! Feel free to download and make your own from the project page!
Originally created in 2006, the Kilroy Development Board has given thousands (~450 per year) of middle and high school students the opportunity to learn basic electronics and programming. Using PICAXE‘s 18X, and now the 20×2/20m2 microcontroller, students can now program in BASIC and take full advantage of Arduino’s wide range of shields. The latest version of Kilroy incorporates the following features:
USB programming via the FT232RL
RS232/5V Serial programming via the PICAXE 1/8″ programming cable
2 x Servo headers
Complete compatibility with Arduino pinout
The PICAXE 20×2 microcontroller has the following features:
Memory (lines): 1000
I/O Pins: 17
Outputs/Inputs: 1-17 (Configurable)
ADC (L=low): 0-8
Data Memory: 128 +i2c+128 Scratch
Based on the PIC PIC18F14K22
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
