February 25, 2015 - Mouser Electronics, Inc. today announced their new Robotics Technology site. Mouser’s new technology site provides developers with the resources they need to learn about the latest advances in robotics technologies, and the newest components from Mouser Electronics for building robotics systems.

Robotics SiteThe new Robotics Technology site, available on Mouser.com, contains valuable information for developers interested in expanding their knowledge about robotics systems. The Technology section is segmented into four main categories. Overview discusses robotics in general and briefly discusses the main subsystems. Motor Control reviews the importance of how motors allow robots to perform physical tasks or travel. Sensorsare used by robots to perceive the world around it and its own status. And MCU Control examines how microcontrollers run the robot and the importance of peripherals for management and communication.

The Articles section discusses topics such as the future of roboticsdistributed control systems in robotics, and robots that very closely resemble humans. All articles offer an area to post comments and questions to facilitate further discussions on the topic.

The Featured Products section focuses on key products available from Mouser that speed and enhance the development of robotics systems. Products include the Texas Instruments Piccolo MCUs and Kits, Panasonic AN44183A Motor Driver, and the Molex Micro-Lock™ 1.25mm pitch wire-to-board connectors.

Finally, the Technical Resources section lists videos, application notes, and white papers that discuss device selection and system considerations when designing robotics systems. Subject discussed include robot teachers, robot restaurants, and even robot cheerleaders.

The Robotics Technology Site is an integral component of the Mouser Electronics Robotics Innovation Hub™, part of the exciting Empowering Innovation Together with Grant Imahara program. This Innovation Hub explores technical engineering through articles, video and content that is specifically designed to educate, inform, and inspire today’s engineers.
