Maximo 5-axis Robot Arm with a laser-cut acrylic body

About this project This is a Robot Arm with 5-axis range of motion allowing movements similar to assembly line robots. It was designed to offer the highest quality while remaining one of the most affordable robotic arms on the market. Three years ago, we created MandleBot, a 5-axis aluminum robotic arm currently being used in schools, robotics clubs, summer camps and even factories. We have enjoyed sharing ...

ARM redesigns Cortex-M processor for video

ARM has introduced its highest performance Cortex-M series processor core. The Cortex-M7 retains the same instruction set of the other processors in the Cortex M series, but has been given a six-stage super scalar pipeline architecture which dramatically increases its performance over the previous Cortex-M4. Ian Johnson, product manager at ARM told Electronics Weekly, the performance increase comes from “th ...

Nvidia goes own way with 64-bit ARM CPU

Dubbed Denver, the processor will be used in the firm’s first 64-bit version of its Tigra K1 mobile processor designed for Android smartphones and tablets. This new version of Tegra K1 pairs our 192-core Kepler architecture-based GPU with the 64-bit, dual-core CPU. Each of the Denver cores implements a 7-way superscalar microarchitecture (up to 7 concurrent micro-ops can be executed per clock), and includes ...

Accreditation is key to choosing the right ARM processor

If the design engineer’s choice of microcontroller was simple once, it certainly is not now. Massive improvements to the processor capabilities, availability of peripherals and power-saving functions of microcontrollers have created huge new opportunities for OEM designers to develop new products and to improve the performance and features of existing products. But the development in technology has also mad ...

Modifying a Robot Arm using Arduino

Essentially another tutorial involving controlling DC motors. In this post I’m going to first alter a robot arm I had built previously from a beginners kit so that it can be controlled from Arduino. Then I’m going to write a series of posts on different ways to control the robot arm using Processing and other things. You should be able to use all of what I write for work with other toys and motors. To start ...
