Cerebot II Resource Center

Welcome to the resource center for the Cerebot II!

Here you will find all the reference materials that Digilent has created for this board, as well as links to any external content we have tracked down. Since this product is retired, documentation and support may be limited.

The Cerebot II board is a useful tool for embedded control and robotics projects for both students and hobbyists.

Its versatile design and programmable microcontroller lets you access numerous peripheral devices and program the board for multiple uses. The board has many I/O connectors and power supply options and supports a number of programming options including the free Atmel AVR® Studio 4, and WinAVR.

The Cerebot II has a number of connections for peripheral devices. It provides eight connectors for attaching Digilent Pmod™ peripheral modules. Digilent peripheral modules include H-bridges, analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters, speaker amplifier, switches, buttons, LEDs, as well as converters for easy connection to RS232, screw terminals, BNC jacks, servo motors, and more.
