Make Controller Kit
The Make Controller Kit is a pair of boards that snap together, with a AT91SAM7X256 as the microcontroller. For communication it has USB, Ethernet, CAN, and JTAG, and supports the Open Sound Control protocol, which has interfaces for numerous programming and scripting languages. It offers eight analog inputs with 10 bits of precision over a 0-to-3.3-volt range. There are eight high-current digital outputs that can drive relays or two stepper motors or possibly solenoids. There are four servo controllers. It has an 8-position dipswitch. It costs $109 at the on-line store for Make Magazine.
