Cerebot32MX4 Servo Reference Design

Question

Good day,

I am looking into implementing a design, using MPLAB X IDE, capable of driving the Servo Motors on a Cerebot 32MX4 PIC using the S1,S2,S3 pins found on the board. I am currently using the RDK Basic reference design as a base for my own design that will be capable of both driving the motors and using the servo motors attached. Since this board is on its last legs and has been replaced by the new Chipkit board it is quite a bit harder to find proper documentation on the servo side of things. I have found references to a design called Cerebot32MX4_Servo_rd.zip and determined that this file was at one point hosted on the digilent servers. Unfortunately, I have not been able to track down a copy of it. It would be a great help if anyone could either provide me with a copy of said reference design or possibly some example code that can help with driving the servo motors.

As far as I can tell the servo motors are driven via the bits 0-7 on PortB.

Hi AlexP,

Yes, as you noted both the Cerebot32MX4 (and the RDK project) have been depreciated in favor of the chipKIT Pro MX4 and other robotics platforms as shown on our Wiki here. However, you can find all of the old resources that we had for the RDK Basic on it's Resource Center here.

Thanks,
JColvin
