KCB-3WL Presentation, Wireless Lan Board from KONDO


phpBB [media]



Specifications are as follows;
Size: 49.2 x 52 x 12 mm
CPU: SAMSUNG ARMbase32bit CPU 200MHz
Memory: RAM 16MByte, Flash ROM 8MByte
Wireless Interface: IEEE802.11a/b/g(54Mbps/11Mbps)
USB port: USB1.1 x1, Full Speed (12Mbps), 500mA from USB port
GPIO port: x 12
STATUS LED: x 3
Power Supply: 16 V ( for HV), inside 5 V and 3.3 V, 240 mA~1A.
OS: Linux OS or VM Ware Player




KONDO also introduced a 4-legged robot with KCB-3WL and small camera in the KONDO booth. The robot was custom-built with 8 KRS-2552HVs for 4 legs and RCB-4HV as the main control board. The robot was able to be controlled through the image from the robot on PC. The pictures and video are as follows;

So, my question is: "Will the KCB-3WL be user-programmable?"

Since it runs a 200 Mhz processor and Linux OS, and they say they do some image processing on board.

As far as the demo is concerned, it is already possible to control the 3HV remotely by adding a wifi-to-serial bridge, like the inexpensive Lantronix Matchport - and some other people have done it with BlueSmirf for bluetooth.

Finally a manufacturer taking things to the next level!

I spoke with the manufacturer and the board is not yet ready for shipping.

This board's price is going to be around 56,000Yen.

some criticism: why did they have to invent something when they could have just developed a daughter-board for a more powerful and cheaper reference design Samsung ARM9 board such as the Micro2440 which has a big opensource following. ?

Does anyone know if this board is available anywhere?

I am thinking of making the Kondo turtle kit with this board attached as a little side project.

Great, I have done so :-)

How does this board compare to the Gumstix or RoBoard? The Yen conversion from Kondo's store suggests it might be quite expensive, but I really like the built in wireless and integration with the RCB4...

Thoughts?

it is more expensive and lower frequency cpu than the gumstix / IGEP but as you have seen from the gumstix khr3 thread, there's quite a bit of missing around with cables, soldering etc. to get it to work and we haven't gotten all the pieces of the puzzle quite yet.
So the 3WL module is a "plug and play" embedded linux for KHR3HV.
