The microprocessor is the heart of the 2007 RoboJackets RoboCup competition robot and acts as the interface between the wireless communication system and the robot proper. A simple firmware program monitoring the internal sensors of the robot and controling the motor and ball roller/shoot will run on the micro. Currently as part of our phase one objectives we are looking closly at processors from Atmel, SI Labs, Motorola, and PICs. Below are some specs.

The Wall

9/14/06 - We chose a dev kit see the sparkfun link below. It'll cost $64.95 a pop and we are getting 3. 11/23/06 - Set the frequency of the mirco and added the crystall its needs
