Re: "Totally Complete Walker" from costaricabeam
- Hey Marcin,
The links still aren't working, but that's ok.
Yes, you could use the 555 servo driver if you want to, I usually use a PWM bicore, there are many ways to skin a cat (although who would want to do that?).
It would be simpler to remove the servo brains though, just put them somewhere safe SO you can reuse them if you want.
With regards to pins 1 & 19 on the 240, these are called "enable" pins. You can find this info on the datasheet. Which is why it's a good idea to familiarize yourself with the sheets of common components used in the hobby. Essentially, the enable is exactly what it says it is, it is used to enable, or, toggle on or off if you will, the devices connected to it. You simply connect the enable pins to either ground or VCC to do this. I wil lleave it up to you to discover which connection will turn the chip's devices on :P
, just as an exercise.
The same is true of the 4066. Just consult your datasheet and see if you figure it out.
I'm not being difficult, just want you to see what you can learn or tease out from available resources. If you have any difficulties, you can always email me at amitjones101@..., make sure to put BEAM in the subject though.
You can also email me your schematics as well.
Know you'll finish your project,
Good luck and Best Regards,
