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.
