Many of you may know the Lynxmotion SSC-32 Servo Controller board: it is one of our most popular products and is found in most Lynxmotion robot kits. It has a long history, designed years ago by Mike Dvorsky, a great contributor that worked with the founders of Lyxnmotion.

Today, we're announcing the release of the successor board: the Lynxmotion SSC-32U USB Servo Controller board
, another great board designed by Mike. This board shares a lot in common with the SSC-32, but has many upgrades. The board not only has USB but also an Xbee socket for wireless control using modules such as a Bluetooth Bee
. The improved power circuit means that most robots no longer need a separate 9V battery for powering the logic circuits. Because the board has the same protocol, it can generally be used as a drop-in replacement.

As of now, all of the Lynxmotion Robotic Arm kits
have been updated to use the new board, and additional Lyxnmotion kits will be progressively updated at later dates.
