We have several new products coming out. Here are some you will see in about 2 to 3 weeks.

RoboClaw5A - 5A dual motor controller with dual quad encoder support.
RoboClaw10A - 10A dual motor controller with dual quad encoder support.
RoboClaw25A - 25A dual motor controller with dual quad encoder support.

So what's the big deal with the quad encoder support you ask? Well no ones doing it (cheaply). Now you can tell your robot to move measured distances. Can you say Dead Reckoning?

3Amp Adjustable BEC - Compact 3Amp switching PSU / BEC. Up to 30v input with 3v to 15v output with little to no heat.
3Amp Adjustable PSU - Compact 3Amp switching PSU / BEC with 5 presets. 3.3v, 5v, 6v, 7.2v and ADJ settings.

The idea here is user adjustable compact switching PSU or BEC (Battery Elimination Circuit). Typically if your running a few servos and powering them from a battery you usually have 2 batteries one for the servo and one for the electronics. Now you can use a large battery pack like a 12v or 8.4v battery using one of our PSU / BEC products and regulate the battery down to 5v no problem! Or my personal favorite and how the products came about, prototyping. I use it as a miniature adjustable power supply. Having the ability to adjust to whatever voltage I need on the fly is invaluable.

Bit Switch - Mosfet switch, controller by servo pulse or simple high low signal.
Nib Switch -4 Mosfet switch, controller by a signal servo pulse or simple high low.

Control high voltage and high amp devices, like weapons on your bot? Or a camera? Or a motor? You do get the Bit Switch = 1 switch and the Nib Switch = 4 switches naming?

There's several more products. We'll post the rest soon.

When might these be available? I'm interested in a 6A BEC (12 servos).

I have been informed that these will be shipping in less than two weeks. Nobody mentioned prices, but the initial sales announcement should happen before then. Watch the BasicMicro front page, as well as here, for this announcement.
Take care.
