Work underway for new motherboards

November 10th, 2012

Three new boards have been added to the Piggyaxe 08M2 family – a 12 volt capable power driver, developed to drive the RGB LED tapes that are increasingly available. Power is fed INTO the daughter board and a 78L05 regulator then feeds the picaxe below. It keeps the Potentiometer and the pushbutton input so you can develop your own routines with maximum flexibility.

There is also a servo driver board that will drive up to 3 servos, also with a pushbutton and potentiometer and on the servo theme, a board that offers sound, LED drive and a servo output with potentiometer and pushbutton input. Photos will appear once I have working prototypes.

It was bound to happen, I ran out of pins for the inevitable “bigger projects”, so I have created two more motherboards to add yet more flexibility to the range.

PiggyMIDDLE, based on the 14M2 and…

PiggyMAX, based on the 20M2.

It will take some time before these appear on this site as I’m still prototyping, but a nice little binary timer with some neat functions/features is currently underway for the PiggyMIDI.
