Hello,

I am looking for a Serial (RS232) based servo controller capable of controlling atleast 2 servos.
I need it to use the continuous rotation servos to move my robot.

I live in Jammu (Jammu And Kashmir) and am finding it difficult to locate such a device.

I had earlier decided on one from Pololu, but their shipping time is too long.

I need one in a week or two.
It should be simple to operate.

This post is in realtion to the post where I have given details of my project. the link is below:

Build one on a breadboard :) ... use Atmega8 and arduino :) . you get 4 PWM by default :) .

Vikas is correct.Just make one on breadboard & it'll take less than 30 min if you have written the software.

It could be the case if i were involved in the electronic stuff.
First of all, i dont know how to solder.
The second thing......I dont have a clue on how to do it.

It would be easy if i could buy one.

I am still open to suggestions.

And I appreciate evry bit of your help.

Actually I am quite surprised that I have found such great advisers. Please keep up the good work.

Everything is available, just your pocket needs to be deep enough.

Lets hope we can fix that..

Your work is done but still i would like to tell you something that breadboard doesn't need soldering.The advantage of breadboard is that you can make circuits without soldering.
