Still don’t get why you guys CANNOT come up with a simple driver board that can take step and direction inputs and drive your multitude of brushed DC motors with encoders for doing simple positioning. I can’t do it, thats why we buy your stuff. But for God’s sake, design and make this thing. This is one of the best ways to create x/y devices. Yet the best thing you have to offer is speed and direction control. JEEEEEEZ guys! That’s so 2K. This would let us use your great DC motors with encoders to actually use the encoders for something other that direction and speed. HOW ABOUT POSITION USING ENCODERS???
Here is a link for a board that I have used in the very past that NO ONE has replicated. IT WORKS GREAT! What can it be, a simple pic microcontroller with some PID action. This is what you guys do… right??? If you can’t do this, I may have to go on freelancer.com and hire some PID guru to bang out some code for a K or 2 and do this myself, I guess… What a GREAT product this would be!
P.S. this is from 2004. What is taking you soooo long to make this damn thing???
