RobotZero Processor

$49.95

RobotZero is one of TinyCircuits’ second-generation processor boards, adding performance upgrades and additional features to the original TinyDuino, including (4) Wireling connectors, (2) motor ports, (4) servo ports, and a built-in 9-Axis sensor. RobotZero is based on the Atmel SAMD21 32-bit ARM Cortex M0+ processor (the same one used in the Arduino Zero) and provides a USB connectivity port, power management, and battery charger in a single 30x30mm board. We’ve kept our standard TinyShield expansion port, allowing for use with our current shields.

  • Arduino compatible bootloader with CDC Serial port, plug and play on OSX and Windows 10

NOTES:

  • To send a text to the Arduino IDE Serial Monitor, use the SerialUSB object instead of Serial.
  • If you could upload a sketch to the TinyZero and now it does not respond, you may need to force this into bootloader mode. To do this, power off the TinyZero using the slide switch. Next, plug the USB cable into the TinyZero and your computer. Then press and hold the button on the bottom of the TinyZero while sliding the switch to the ON position. Then try uploading your program to the TinyZero, and it should work. You may need to try this several times if it does not work the first time.
