Using Baby Orangutan to control 2-axis PWM system with encoders

Is the B-328 appropriate for controlling a 2-axis PWM system with each axis mounting an absolute encoder? Space limitations are pushing me towards a pair of Renishaw SSI RM-08 encoders–23412. Is the B-328 appropriate for this endeavor? Is there any literature that would assist in writing the controlling script? Thanks


It is not clear to me what you mean by 2-axis PWM system; however, it sounds like you want to control two motors with the Baby Orangutan and read encoders that are connected to the motors. You might find the “Motor Control Functions” and “Wheel Encoder Functions” sections of the Pololu AVR C/C++ Library User’s Guide helpful for using those encoders with the Baby Orangutan.
