Unformatted text preview: The ER1 is a commercial robot base designed to carry a notebook PC. The ER1 uses USB for motor control and sensor interfaces. Options for the electronics to control the Robot Use Microcontroller Chip(s) Use a commercial embedded computer board or a notebook PC Use a basic FPGA board or an FPGA-based SOPC board with a Processor IP core This Arcom Olympus embedded computer board uses X86 PC chip technology and runs Windows CE or Embedded XP using Flash memory located on the backside of the board. Alteras UP2 board is a 70,000 Gate FPGA board. It was used to control the first two robots in our digital laboratory course Alteras Nios SOPC board contains a 200,000 gate FPGA with Flash and SRAM memory. It can run a soft RISC processor IP core...
