I'm wondering if people know much about these mini motherboards. I recently read this http://www.ez-robot.com/Tutorials/Hardware.aspx?id=19 and this appears to be ideally suited for my needs. Although I don't know much about them. Heres what I'd like to know about them:
. can they be powered from a battery of some kind
. can software written on c# be used on it without having windows installed on it and if so, how?
I have tried searching the net for answers on this but I've had no luck although this maybe more to do with the fact I don't know about them. Software I've written in the past had been only for windows. Not even Linux. That been said, could Ubuntu be used instead of windows?
Upgrade to ARC Pro
ARC Early Access will give you immediate updates and new features needed to unleash your robot's potential!
you can use a lighter version of windows, windows 7 starter for instance.
use a Pico psu or a dc/dc board all available on eBay. And power can be 12v to over 24v. Use a car laptop charger and a small 19v dc/dc board and run on a 12v battery.
carputers are a good thing to look at since they run on 12v dc.
check out mp3 car they have a lot of information and videos, but I would not buy from them because they are very overpriced
hope this helps
