This Roll-out Video includes:

  1. Hook-up guide for Power, Digital Sensor, Analog Sensor, I2C, Camera, and Speaker
  2. Using related Synthiam ARC software skills
  3. Schematic overview
  4. Bill of Materials (BOM) overview
  5. Custom firmware location
The EZ-Bv4 reference design has the wireless video and audio streaming capabilities of an IoT device paired together with the sensor and servo features of a robot controller. It's the only I/O controller that takes full advantage of all the amazing features in ARC. We want to share the EZ-Bv4 reference design files with you so you can create your own!
