New Boards

The servo motor and servo controller boards have now been manufactured for me. I collected them last week. Ive soldered the connectors onto them and I am now waiting for a some new PIC and Picaxe processors to arrive. As soon as this happens I will actually have everything I need to drive my robot joints.

The annoying thing is that while I was waiting for my boards to be manufactured, I figured out how to build the multiplexer using USB electronics. One USB multiplexer could have easily done the work of 8 or more RS232 multiplexers! Oh well, thats a job for another day...
