We are very pleased to introduce the Micro Maestro, the first member of our new line of USB servo controllers! In addition to a TTL serial interface, this tiny board incorporates native USB control and programmability via a simple scripting language. With a resolution of 0.25 us and built-in speed and acceleration control, this device offers all the features you'd expect of a latest-generation device (and more) at a surprisingly affordable price of $24.95.
The Micro Maestro's six channels can also be used as general-purpose digital outputs and analog inputs, giving you an easy way to read sensors and control peripherals directly from your PC. A free configuration and control application for Windows makes it easy to configure and test this highly versatile device, create sequences of servo movements, and write scripts for self-contained, host controller-free applications. The Micro Maestro is available fully assembled or as a partial kit.
The following picture shows a tiny, three-servo hexapod that is driven by a script on the Micro Maestro and powered by a four-cell 1/3-AAA battery pack:
