1. Overview

The Baby Orangutan B-48, B-168, and B-328 robot controllers are complete control solutions for small robots. The small module includes a powerful Atmel ATmega48/168/328P microcontroller, two channels of bidirectional motor control, a user potentiometer, 18 user I/O lines (16 of which can be used as general-purpose digital I/Os and 8 of which can be used as analog input channels) that can be used to expand the system. A battery, motors, and sensors can be connected directly to the module to create simple robots.

Note: This user’s guide applies only to the most recent Baby Orangutan B revision. The older, discontinued Baby Orangutans have green solder masks while the new Baby Orangutan Bs have blue solder masks.
