PB704A is the motherboard of the HyInt system as both the CM-iGLX and PB704B (Power Supply) boards connect to it.
This board not only provides a secure mounting location for the CM-iGLX but transfers all the necessary signals from the CM-iGLX to appropriate connectors.
It is a relatively simple board but none-the-less required to allow access to the CM-iGLX's comms ports.
PB704B is the board within the HyInt system that:
- takes the supply voltage, from either the battery pack or the DC jack, and generates 5V and 3.3V that are used by the various sub-modules,
- has circuitry that monitors the battery voltage and at preset levels will shutdown the Dynamixel network whilst warning the CM-iGLX that a power shut down is imminent, and
- provides the connectors for the Dynamixel network.
To continue along with the Open-Platform
philosophy used for Hykim
, HyInt's User Manual
is a Wiki where customers are encouraged to add to the User Manual as well as submit code for others to use. We hope that both Hykim
will become a platform for a collaborative project between many Universities.
So, if you are interested in getting a HyInt and joining this collaborative project, then please see our pricing for this advanced robotic platform here.
