This is a small size version of the Orangutan B-328 (3cm x 1.75cm). In a board as compact as a microcontroller (24 pin form factor), you will find a complete robot controller with a high performance AVR microcontroller (Atmega328P, 32KB of memory and 2KB of RAM) as well as a controller for 2 motors. The Pololu Baby Orangutan is a perfect choice to build a small size robot or to control some specific part of your robot. It contains enough connectors for a battery, some sensors and motors.

The Baby Orangutan B is a great choice for hobbyist in robotics because of its size and price. Add a power source and a low cost programmer and you are good to go. By removing larger Orangutan components, Pololu has significantly improved manufacturing process to offer the Baby Orangutan B at a very affordable price. Because the Orangutans are based on Atmel’s powerful AVR microcontrollers, it delivers significantly higher performance than other similar controller boards. With the free Atmel Development Studio IDE, the WinAVR GCC C/C++ compiler as well as a low-cost programmer, such as the Pololu USB AVR programmer, the Baby Orangutan B is a truly outstanding value.
