Hello, this is my first post here. All you projects look amazing!
I hope to learn alot!
Anyways, has anyone worked with AVR microchips before? I personally use Atmel’s ATMega 168. I find that the interpreter is a little hard to get working but it is really easy to work with after that. The chips are pretty cheap to.
I’ve been working with I’ve been working with ATmega168 a bit, but only through the Arduino environment. I’ve felt this microcontroller is powerful, even trigonometry and inverse kinematics calculations works well.
I am not using one of the ready robot-boards like adruino, as you can see on my bot project, the microcontroller sitts right on the breadboard. I make all my drive-cirquits myself and for programming assembler, i found that AVR-Studio is the best envoirement. If you are a beginner you will find adruino bords and IDE more easy though I think, because it aleready has some standart cirquits on it, and i think there are a lot of libarys out there for adruino, that you can include, instead of programming every PWM and every sensor yourself. (Thats why it takes me so long to get my motors woring^^)
