June 8, 2014 - PRLog -- Vancouver, BC:Mikronauts, a developer and manufacturer of innovative electronics and robotics products, announces RoboPi, an advanced robot controller for the Raspberry Pi. RoboPiadds an eight-core 32-bit RISC microcontroller to the Raspberry Pi in order to off-load hard real time I/O and dramatically expand the Raspberry Pi's capabilities.

RoboPi allows sophisticated robots to be made with a Raspberry Pi handling vision and RoboPi handling the low level control - you can think of RoboPi as the 'hindbrain', and the Raspberry Pi as the 'cerebral cortex'- Mikronauts CTO William Henning”

RoboPi Features

Parallax Propeller P8X32 eight core 32 bit Risc microcontroller running at 100Mhz

eight channel 0-5V MCP3208 analog to digital converter with servo compatible headers

three ten-pin Mikronauts I/O module expansion connectors (P0-P7, P8-P15, P16-P23)

24 servo compatible headers on P0..P23

P0-P7 & P8-P15 can select external power power or Pi's 5VDC power supply

P16-P23 is powered by 5V from the Pi expansion header for sensors

512Kbit boot EEPROM for the Propeller

4 pin I2C expansion headers for both the Raspberry Pi and the Propeller

5 pin HCOM connector for use with PropPlug in stand alone operation (optional)

extensive RoboPi Build Manual and RoboPi User Manual

Arduino-style C library for the Raspberry Pi and Spin Object for the Parallax Propeller

RoboPi is supplied kit form in order to be more cost effective for schools, clubs and individuals.
