There are any number of Arduino compatible boards and clones on the market. However, most offer little beyond what an Arduino is capable of itself.But, despite looking much like an Arduino Uno, the new XLR8 board (pronounced “Accelerate”) from Alorium Technology is somewhat different.

Connect the BNO055 as before and add servos, connected to digital pins 9-11. If you’re using the gimbals to hold a camera, consider upgrading to the Alorium XLR8 board. Servos rely on precise timing, and if the Arduino is processing competing tasks, it can lead to jitter.

Although Arduino is an excellent platform for rapidly and inexpensively building new product designs, it is resource limited. Alorium Technology’s XLR8 board solves this problem in a cost-effective manner by integrating an Arduino-compatible processor into an FPGA with custom Xcelerator Blocks that significantly improve Arduino-based projects.
