The EZ-B IoTiny 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 1/4 the size of the EZ-B v4 but it has 1/4 the amount of I/O pins as a result. It's barrel jack for power and upward facing GVS servo/sensor pins make the IoTiny instantly application ready. We want to share these reference design files with you so you can create your own!
