12-way Input/Output Interface
Electronic Schematics > Robotics > 12-way Input/Output Interface

This interface is designed for use with a three axis robot arm based on stepper motors out of 5 1/4" drives. The circuit uses two ULN2803 'drivers' controlled by logic ICs to allow mutliple lines to be controlled at the same time. (Logic circuit design by Ian Threlfo). How it Works: Click here for an explanation of the circuit logic.

This is also the first interface bearing the Educational Computing Association of Western Australia (ECAWA) logo, indicating it has been developed by the ECAWA Robotics Special Interest Group.
