The Huskie Board, designed by Team 3061, is an FRC qualified expansion board for the NI roboRIO robotics controller. In addition to breaking out all available signals on the MXP expansion port, this board uses a Parallax Propeller chip (8 symmetrical logical cores with shared memory and peripheral access) to enable tasks such as advanced data logging, on-field driver control and status, and NeoPixel control. Additional GPIO and analog inputs are added with open source code to allow further customization. The Huskie Board is available for purchase through Playing With Fusion.
