The Cypress PSoC is a programmable “system on chip” device which includes all the functions of a traditional microcontroller, in addition to programmable analog and digital blocks. This combination allows for a single chip solution for many robotics projects.
FPGAs are ICs found in some of the latest electronics products. This two-part series begins with a quick introduction to field programmable gate arrays to get you started experimenting with them.
This time, we’ll replace the manual switch control with fully automatic electronic function, so our robot will react to light.
Beef up your Boe-Bot to do more than humanly possible ... well, sort of.
