The uArm shield is coming

After the development of a few versions of the electronic modules, we have made the first design of uArm shiled. uArm shield a shield for Arduino to drive the vacuum pump and the servos. In additional, the power supply board will be on the shield, too.

Today we got the sample board of uArm shield and have made some tests of it. Everything works well.

Here is some photos of the shield.

With electronic parts of uArm, we have made 5 versions so far.

The first version: A micro-controller board, a motor driver, a power supply board, a vacuum pump and a solenoid valve.

      Hi Oscar,

      We will launch a Kickstarter campaign of this robot arm soon in this month. And all the files will be released after our Kickstarter campaign. Even if our Kickstarter campaign fails, the files will be released too.

    Does the uArm shield support regular hobby servos (3 wire)?

    Thanks

    David

      Yes of course, if you want to use the regular servo, just leave the port Ax away.
