CONTROLLERS & PROCESSORS
USB Four Relay Controller
Use your PC to
about anything with
the USB Four Relay
This is a device
which allows a user
to control larger
voltage devices via
a PC. Each relay can
be independently controlled and is capable of switching
DC voltages up to 100 VDC at 5A and AC voltages up to
120 VAC at 10A. The Four Relay Controller is perfect for
controlling small electronic devices and appliances.
The Controller features a USB to serial port interface
and can be easily controlled and manipulated via free
development software on most platforms. The open
sample control software and API make it easy to get up
and running quickly with the Controller.
The Four Relay Controller is Windows Vista
compatible. Sample software, examples, videos, and
API documentation can all be found at the Endurance
Robotics website listed below.

What’s a CPLD?
CPLDs are chips
that are internally
constructed of an
array or matrix of
units or blocks.
Each cell can

CPLDs are a great starting point for those interested
in programmable logic technology and allow you to
seamlessly move into their bigger brothers — Field
Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) — when you’re ready.
The MACH64 from Nurve Networks kit is two kits in one:
• A complete Lattice ispMACH 4064 series development
kit with a built-in programmer which supports external
targets, as well.
• The MACH64 is a powerful educational kit that
teaches CPLD technology and programming from the
ground up — applicable to any CPLD.
The MACH64 kit comes complete with everything
you need to learn, experiment, design, and program with
CPLDs. The included 250+ page manual starts off with
the technology of CPLDs and then eases you into the
ABEL Language used to program CPLDs. The numerous
challenging hands-on projects include: basic logic gates,
counters, state machines, ALU design, audio generation,
NTSC, and VGA video generation, plus more.
Everything you need to build all the labs is included
in the kit along with extra parts for your own creations
(resistors, capacitors, LEDs, transistors, diodes). You can
design your own chips.
