Not a game-changer, but a solid upgrade
The roboRIO 2.0 retains almost all the features of the 1.0 version. Most significant in the new version is the micro SD card, which replaces the USB retention screws. Having the robot code on the SD card is pretty handy and makes for quick code changes. The processor is supposed to be much faster, almost 2X, but we haven’t seen that yet. The NavX works fine in the MXP port, the CAN bus works as expected, and the PWM and DIO ports work, too. No messy surprises so far.
Our team needed to order a new robo rio 2.0 but...
Our team needed to order a new robo rio 2.0 but it was out of supply. We requested an email when it is available. We received the email and ordered it asap. It took us 3 days to get it and we are pleased. Thank you.
AndyMark greatly improved shipping times this season.
More powerful than 1.0
The RobRIO 2.0 has a faster processor. The storage memory is all contained in the microSD card. There is much more permanent storage than the 1.0. The only way I could change the firmware was by programming the SD card. One feature is that you can have more than one SD card programmed. You can quickly change the SD card to change the loaded program. I am looking forward to the extra memory and the processor speed for image processing.
You will need a new version of the Imaging tool to use this device
The new imaging tool has not been released yet. To use this device now you need access to the Beta version of the 2022 Game Tools so that you can image it.
