MyChicA Got Her Brain and Juices...

After my fun-filled holidays with the family, managed to put my hands back on myChicA project. MyChicA now has a brain and power plant. The brain is in the form of Microchip PIC16F876A processor running at 20MHz capable of driving 8 servos with about 200ns resolution. It can communicate with host PC on RS232 interface at 19200bps with no problem. Several spare connectors are on board to allow for future expansion and/or experimentation. So far, myChicA can walk forward and backward with no problem albeit a bit jerky. Software improvement is in progress...

Let the coding begins...
