Abstract

The control module we developed for mechatronics education, consists of a Field-programmable gate array (FPGA), a Programmable System-On-Chip (PSoC) and Game Boy Advance (GBA). The FPGA and PSoC provide a reconfigurable peripheral module and the GBA provides computational power and an interactive user interface. The interactive user interface is very useful for developing educational materials, and the control module enables educators to develop a variety of educational materials.
