It’s National Robotics Week, and what would National Robotics Week be without a CPLD based mini robot design? Here’s a mini robot design project outline (PDF!) found in the World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology journal.
While it’s not a “how to” style article (no schematic/code provided), it describes the advantages of using CPLDs in robot design and highlights the considerations involved.
Their design uses the XC2C32A CoolRunner-II chip, which is the smaller version of the chip used in our CoolRunner-II Development Board.
