The VEX Cortex Microcontroller coordinates the flow of all information and power on the robot. It has built in bi-directional communication for wireless driving, debugging and downloading using the state of the art VEXnet 802.11 wireless link. The Microcontroller is the brain of every VEX robot.
Built-in VEXnet Technology: Wireless driving, wireless debugging, and wireless downloading
Motor Ports: (8) standard 3-wire Motor or Servo ports. (2) 2-wire Motor ports.
I2C Smart Sensor Port: Will connect to multiple new smart sensors in the future.
UART Fast Serial Ports: Connects to the VEX LCD Display (19,200 baud) and will have future support to 1.125 Mbaud
Digital/Analog Input Ports: (8) high-res Analog Inputs, (12) fast Digital I/Os that can be used as interrupts.
Battery Ports: Connect 7.2V power sources, such as the Battery Holder or the VEX 7.2V Robot Battery. Also connect a 9V Backup Battery to protect against communication losses.
