The TWR-MECH is a Mechatronics board, It can be demonstrated with Freescale robot kit (FSLBOT) to create an easy to use Mechatronics development and demonstration platform. The tower system Mechatronics board has a 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis magnetometer and a 12 channel touch sensor. It is programmable in C/C++ using CodeWarrior and an on-board OSBDM flash programming tool. For fast prototyping or for individuals without C/C++ experience, the board is supported by StickOS BASIC. The tower system Mechatronics board combines 32bit computing, sensors, actuator control and wireless into a single stand-alone board with an on-board battery supply. The tower system Mechatronics board has a 32bit ColdFire microcontroller with 64K of RAM, 512K of flash and supports the full range of Freescale Xtrinsic sensors via plug-in daughter boards. The board can directly control up to eight actuators (PWM-controlled RC servos) via the eight industry standard 3-pin connectors.

Feature & Benefits:
MCF52259 32bit MCU with 64K RAM, 512K flash
MPR121 capacitive touch sensor
MMA8451Q 3-axis accelerometer
Optional plug in sensor daughter boards available for touch, accelerometer, magnetometer
Control up to eight PWM RC servo motors (compatible with VEX 3 wire servos)
Can be used stand-alone, or plugged into the tower system
Integrated open-source BDM (8bit 9S08JM60 USB enabled MCU)
Programmable in C/C++ using CodeWarrior
Supported by StickOS

Applications: Robotics, Industrial, Motor Drive & Control, Communications & Networking, Embedded Design & Development

Kit Contents:
