Features an Arduino mainboard "core" concept, STM32-ARM processor and tons of I/O.
The Gorgon Flex utilizes an Arduino Ethernet mainboard as a core allowing the user to tailor the Gorgon to their specific IO needs.
Gorgon works with our RobotOpen Library and driver station app to make programming and interfacing via WIFI easy for beginners while maintaining access to advanced functions for expert users.
Programmed with the Arduino IDE.
The Gorgon Ethernet requires a WIFI router for wireless operation.
This version requires an FTDI programmer to upload code...we recommend this unit.
FTDI programmer from Sparkfun
