We’re excited to announce the release of the Orangutan SVP-1284 robot controller featuring the brand new Atmel ATmega1284P AVR microcontroller! With 128KB of program memory, 16KB of RAM, and 4KB of EEPROM, the SVP-1284 offers a serious memory boost over other Orangutan robot controllers. The Orangutan SVP-1284 is a super-sized version of the Orangutan SV, with a built-in AVR ISP programmer, more I/O lines, and more regulated power. It features higher-power dual motor drivers (2 A continuous per channel, 6 A peak), a bigger 16x2 LCD (with backlight), a demultiplexer for easy control of up to eight servos, and more.
The Orangutan SVP-1284 is available as a fully assembled version for $99.95 or a partial kit (without the LCD) for $89.95. We have reduced the price of the ATmega324PA-based Orangutan SVP-324 (32KB flash, 2KB RAM) to $84.95 for the fully assembled version and $74.95 for the partial kit.
