ZeroPi is a new system and development board that is Arduino Zero compatible and has been specifically designed for robotic motion structure systems.
The ZeroPi is equipped with a Atmel SAMD21J18, 32-bit ARM Cortex M0+ as the MCU, which is fully compatible with the official Arduino Zero, Raspberry Pi and more. Watch the video below to learn about this new development kit that has launched over on the Kickstarter crowdfunding website looking to raise $5,000. Its developers explain a little more :
ZeroPi can be applied to all kinds of application scenes such as 3D printer, CNC, tracked mobile robot and etc. ZeroPi has specially designed the M4 holes in order to perfectly compatible with Makeblock Aluminum mechanical parts to support open-source hardware or robotic projects.
ZeroPi can control 11 micro servos and 8 DC motors at the same time (or 4 stepper motors). The 4-channel SLOT module is compatible with common stepper motor and DC motor drivers (such as DRV8825 or A4988 Stepper motor driver and TB6612 DC motor driver). It also support the opens-source sensors.
