The v2.8 OpenROV Controller Board functions as the electronic interface between your control device and your OpenROV. The Controller Board directly handles the low-level commands to devices such as the sensors, motors, servos, and lights. The v2.8 Controller Board is pre-loaded with the latest OpenROV firmware and Arduino boot loader.
We've created a modified version of the v2.8 controller board that will interface with older versions (v2.6 and v2.7). The difference between this controller board and the standard v2.8 controller board is the DB-25 connector on the Backwards Compatible board is oriented vertically.
Please note that this board won't work with a v2.8 OpenROV. If you have a v2.8 ROV, you will want to use the v2.8 Controller Board.
