Replaced by v2.0 -- available here
The Make Controller 2.0 & Interface Board Kit includes the Make Controller Version 2.0 and the new Interface Board that makes adding sensors and motors easier than ever! Also available with the Application Board
The Make Controller is built around the AT91SAM7X256, and adds the essential components (like the crystal, voltage regulator, filter capacitors, etc.) required to run it, while bringing almost all the processor's signal lines out to standard 0.1" spaced sockets. The software environment remains constant no matter what you plug the Make Controller into -- the firmware libraries are organized and documented, making it clear which are compatible with the Controller and Application boards.
The Interface Board makes it easy to connect and communicate with your favorite devices with up to 35 general input/outputs, 2 serial ports, TWI, CAN, SPI along with Ethernet and USB. All pins are 0.1" spaced for easy insertion into your prototyping breadboard.
The Interface Board is compatible with the Make Controller Board -- simply unplug it from the Application Board and insert it into the Interface Board. Because you're still using the same Make Controller Board, you can use the same great open source software tools: mcbuilder, a simple development environment that contains everything needed to write programs for the Make Controller, and mchelper, a configuration program that makes it easy to configure your Make Controller once it's running.
