I really liked your article on enable_servo() and disable_servo(), Jeremy, but, I have a few questions. So, since you can put -1 in the parameter, I'm assuming that the integer is a signed integer(I want to know this because it makes a significant difference to the compiling). Also, out of curiosity, because you said that the Handy Board had a 2MHz CPU and 32 KiB of RAM, how fast is the Link's CPU and how much RAM does it have?

On the CBC, servo values are signed, yes.

I don't recall exactly what the Link's specs are, but if you Google for "Bunnie Kovan" you may find some specs. If you happen to find it please let us know. :-)

Oh, thanks for the reply. I'll look it up. Thanks. Oh, ok, it says that the CPU runs at 800 MHz. With FPGA co processor.
