Thread: USB2AX v3.2 upcoming release

  1. USB2AX v3.2 upcoming release

    Hi!

    The USB2AX is getting a little face lift. The size, functionalities and hackability are unafected. The Firmware is the same as the one for the v3.1a.
    This is mainly a redesign to use more widely availalable components in place of some of the most expensive and hard to find elements (dual color LED, crystal...).

    The files can be found in the new home for all the USB2AX files and sources, cleaned up and re-organized : https://github.com/Xevel/usb2ax

    It is planned to be for sell starting in around a month at a slightly smaller price than the current one.

    Can you point me in the direction of what might be needed to get USB2AX working with the new dynamixel XL-320 servos in linux?
    I understand I'll need to adapt the actual molex connector, but for software, the DynamixelSDK currently doesn't support the XL-320, does it? Would there need to be any changes in the firmware for USB2AX?

    Firmware should not need any changes, just update the dxl_sdk on the PC to use the dxl_2.0 protocol. It uses a different packet format and a CRC function, instead of the inverted 8-bit sum used as the old checksum. The packet format and CRC function are on the Robotis support site under 'Product Information -> Dynamixel -> Communication 2.0'.
