OOPic is an acronym for Object-Oriented Programmable Integrated Circuit. It is the first programmable micro-controller / PVC that uses an object-oriented language. No additional expensive programming hardware to buy. A cable to your PC is all it takes. No additional EPROM eraser to buy. The OOPic's EEPROMs erase automatically when you download a new program. No new language syntax to learn! The OOPic Basic syntax is 100% compatible with Microsoft's Visual Basic®.
It is great to use OOPIC as a brain of your robot. OOPIC can be interfaced with sonar, digital compass, LCD and sero etc. The limitation is your imagination! Check the official OOPIC homepage for application examples and technical specifications. OOPIC development software download page
OOPIC has a family of OOPIC-III, OOPIC-III Plus, OOPIC-R, and OOPIC-C. They are using the same firmware but with different hardware form.
NOTE: OOPIC-II is obsolute and is now replaced by OOPIC-III.
