Welcome to Kronos Robotics

Interesting MCs abound! This one's no exception.

Small, inexpensive, almost certainly PICmicro based, these look like a very cool item. I just ordered some Athena stuff to play with, so will report later.

The Athena chips don't have a lot of program storage space, but Kronos says their "compiler" is pretty efficient. Still, for many MC apps, the space they do have should be fine. The Dios chips boast a far larger program memory.

They are programmed in Kronos' own spin on BASIC - the IDE, compiler, and .pdf manual are free, btw - and all the support boards are quite reasonably priced. The Athena chips themselves are around seven bucks in singles.

Kronos also has a nice selection of project ideas and notes on the site.
