Forum: Virtual Classroom - Why Do You Need Arduino At All?
Why Do You Need Arduino At All?On your diagram (http://www.thumbsat.com/pics/uploads/13840.jpg) you are going to control the az-el tracking by Arduino with Pololu drivers. Most (everyone I ever heard about) single-board computers, however, have more than enough controlled pins to control drivers on their own. CHIP also have some.
So why not avoid the Arduino? It will decrease the price little bit and will make the system more simple and reliable. 26th Feb 201606:52
