Our fourth-generation Roboics Cape, developed at the UC San Diego Coordinated Robotics Lab, is the definitive break-out board for the immensely popular and highly connectable BeagleBone® Black and Black Wireless, designed for a host of small robotic systems.  It includes:?
  • built-in 2-cell LiPo support with balanced charging and convenient LED power gauge,
  • 9-18V charger input,
  • 4 DC motor outputs,
  • 8 PWM outputs for servos and ESCs (with the Black performing PWM generation on coprocessors, not bogging down the ARM)
  • 4 quadrature encoder inputs (with the Black performing high-speed encoder counting on coprocessors, not bogging down the ARM),
  • built-in 9-axis IMU (3-axis gyroscope + 3-axis accelerometer + 3-axis magnetometer) plus barometer,
  • easy-connect JST interfaces for all of the essential busses: I2C, SPI, UART, CAN, GPIOs, GPS, DSM2 radio, power, ADC.
  • user-programmable LEDs and buttons.
A freely-available, open-source, debugged, efficient, and supported C software library drives all of these functions.

[Note that the Robotics Cape is NOT compatible with the PocketBeagle.  They are different sizes.]
5 Stars
The Cape with a Black is everthing needed for controlling many robotic vehicles. The supplied code base is quite functional and lets you get started quickly with minimal coding. The on board battery charging circuit is a real plus for running untethered. The broad set of test programs and example programs lets you use your bot right away, especially if you combine the Cape and Black with one of their bots.
