This partial kit gives you the flexibility make a customized Orangutan SVP-1284 (MCM Part# 28-17698 with the headers and other through-hole components that best suit your project. All of the surface-mount parts are pre-soldered, including an ATmega1284P AVR microcontroller with 128 KB flash and 16 KB RAM, but nothing is soldered to the through-hole pads. The partial kit includes male and female versions of all of the header pins. An LCD is not included.

Specifications Top

The Orangutan SVP robot controller is a complete control solution for small and medium-sized robots running at 6 - 13.5 V. The module is designed around the powerful Atmel ATmega324PA AVR microcontroller (32 KB flash, 2 KB RAM, and 1 KB EEPROM) or ATmega1284P (128 KB flash, 16 KB RAM, and 4 KB EEPROM) running at 20 MHz and features a full complement of peripheral hardware to support robotics applications. For a detailed description of the Orangutan SVP's capabilities, please see the product page for the fully assembled SVP-1284 (MCM Part# 28-17698".The Orangutan SVP partial kit PCB has all of the surface-mount components pre-soldered, and the kit includes the following through-hole components so that you can customize the robot controller to your particular application:
  • Six 3x4 male header blocks
  • Six 3x4 female header blocks
  • One 3x7 male header block
  • One 3x7 female header block
  • Three 2-pin 3.5mm terminal blocks
  • Five blue shorting blocks
  • Two 2x3 female header blocks
  • One 2x3 shrouded box header
  • One 2x8 shrouded box header
  • One buzzer
  • Five pushbuttons
  • One 2x20 breakaway male header
  • One 1x20 breakaway male header
  • Five 1x2 female header blocks
  • Two single-pin female headers
Like the fully assembled version, the kit includes a USB A to mini-B cable.LCD
The Orangutan SVP partial kit does not include an LCD. The 16x2 LCDs (both with backlight and without) can be plugged directly into the PCB if you solder a 2x7 female header (MCM Part# 28-17729) to the left side of the LCD and two single male pins to the right side of the LCD. These two male pins provide structural support for the LCD and power the backlight on the version with a backlight. You can connect your own parallel-interface (HD44780) LCD, such as the 20x4 LCD to the LCD port via a 16-conductor ribbon cable.Customization
Since the Orangutan SVP partial kit includes headers of both genders, you have the ability to solder in the gender that best suits the peripherals you plan to connect to the board, or you could go for an even more compact installation and solder your peripherals directly to the I/O pads. Since the buzzer and pushbuttons are not pre-soldered, you can replace these with components of your choosing, such louder speakers (the Orangutan SVP powers the buzzer through a transistor rather than a microcontroller I/O pin, so it can support much higher-power speakers than previous Orangutans) and bigger buttons located off of the board.
