► E Series - For Earth based applications
where size & ease of programming matter.
► M Series - For Mars/Planetary based
applications where our shielding
methodology and triple modular redundancy
will limit errors.
► S Series - For free space based applications
where RAD hard components are a must.
Based off the Xilinx Virtex-5Q FPGA allowing
reconfigurable hardware, which serves
as its own back-up.
► The Gravity Development Board will be the
first space rated open hardware electronic
prototyping board, enabling any type of
person to create real life space hardware.
► Uses dense double sided Surface Mount
Technology, with hardware that includes;
Two Full H-Bridges, 18 GPIO, Eight channel
12-bit ADC conversion, Multiplexer, and USB
& wireless communication.
► Great driver for Firgelli L16 -P linear actuator.

E Series - Gravity Development Board (GDB)
Alpha real life hardware
With limited funds and expertise, prototyping a new technology can be a cumbersome and unnecessarily expensive process, especially for undergrad students, hobbyists, and small technology firms.
The GDB will replace the Arduino Uno® as the preferred high-level prototyping environment. By being upto 40x faster, 70% smaller, having integrated high power drivers (capable of handling 100x the current), with more flexible Input / Output configurations, and yet is still much easier to program.
The alpha version was tested in three schools in a wide array of designs; from a Scanning Electron Microscope sampler, a robotic worm, and an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle. With the flexibility to program the board in four languages (The 12 Blocks GUI, SPIN, C+, or Assembly), you don't have to decide between ease of coding and efficiency. You can have both!
The E Series is the first of a three part series of multifunctional project development boards that will allow for quicker and thus cheaper prototyping. Our proprietary software will control all the open source hardware, creating a high level hardware API. The large and open source object exchange of the Propeller chip also allows for the easy addition of software functions.
Beta design is being finalized
