The Digilent Nanocon board is useful for embedded control and robotics projects for both students and hobbyists.
The Nanocon's versatile design and programmable microcontroller allows you to control different external devices and program the board for multiple uses. The board has many I/O connectors, power supply options, and supports a number of programming tools including Atmel® AVR Studio 4, and WinAVR.
The Nanocon has a number of connections for peripheral device. Digilent peripheral modules (Pmods) include H-bridges, analog to digital and digital to analog converters, a speaker, switches, buttons, LEDs, RS232 converters, screw terminal connectors, BNC connectors, servo motors, and more.
The Nanocon ships with three straight male and one right angle female 6-pin connectors that are not attached to the board. This allows the greatest flexibility for the user when setting up board usage. The user is required to solder these connectors according to his or her needs.
