Posted 11 Aug 2003 at 20:36 UTC by steve Share This

Several people submitted this story over the weekend so there must be a lot of interest in XScale boards out there. K-Team has introduced a new single board controller designed specifically for robotics use. The board, called KoreBot, sports a 400 MHz Intel XScale CPU, 64MB RAM, and 32MB Flash, and operates on anything from 3 to 30 Vdc. The board include 2 USB host and 1 USB client ports, a JTAG port, 2 Compact Flash Type-1 sockets, 2 RS-232 ports, I2C bus, SSP/SPI bus, 2PWM and 53 GPIO pins. The board must be ordered from Switzerland and is priced at 650 Euros (about $738).


It's about the features., posted 12 Aug 2003 at 17:47 UTC by nprobert » (Apprentice)

The XScale chip isn't the primary feature, but all the I/O which makes it extremely attractive to embedded system developers as well as robotics people.

It would be nice to see a similar one with x86 or PowerPC chip.
