This was posted up on RCU by Clark.  It looks a really board with lots of features.  It still would be nice the sound was programmable.



With most of software driver are tested OK, we now can lunch TK60, one of the final two building blocks of TK series, here are the overview.

Layout:


Clark Board TK60 Attachment

Control:
Up to 8 control channel( CH1~Cool
Dedicate elevation control channel
Dedicate control channel for 2nd MG channel, sound/light
Dedicate channel to play any of the 3 user's sounds


Track driver(CN6, CN7):
60A max per channel, u
p to 550 type motor can be used for modern tank,
Additional solder pad for Hi-curret connector is provided on PCB( CN6-A, CN6-B, CN7-A, CN7-B , CN1-A, CN1-B )

IR battle system:
Support Tamiya 1/16, Tamiya 1/35, HengLong and VStank IR format,
Support Machine gun IR code,
Support repair function to simulate a repair tank (bergepanzer)
Support soft skin weight class. One hit and destroyed,
[size=13][size=13] Tamiya-compatible,
Small, medium, large caliber cannon IR code, ex. larger caliber code cause more damage,
Enemy fire direction detection, cause different level of damage, ex. fire from the back cause more damage.
[/size]
Recoil:
Support for Tamiya, HL, Taigen and servo recoil
,
Damping factor of servo recoil(J2) can be adjusted

Lights:
4-LED rotating light support, use 4 LEDs to simulate rotating light (L5~L8)
Working brake light (when tail lights and momentum is turned on)
Headlights and tail lights can be switched on and off by transmitter


Smoke Generator:
Heater of smoke Generator can be preheated for large amount of smoke at engine start,(CN12)
Proportional control of smoke generator (full power during engine startup, then proportional to engine revs)

Sounds:

15W, 4~8 ohm on-board amplifier(CN5)
5-Channel, dynamic allocation, smooth transit, sound generator(no delays on sound effect which is caused by priority table like IBU2)
Single to any burst MG sound and light,
2nd MG sound and light effect, also single to any burst(L4)

[size=13]8M byte on-board memory, pack and program data(J7), like [/size]Benedini, no need to edit table, no need of SD card,
Engine sound level is [size=13] proportional to true engine load and revs

Customizable sounds (22050 Hz, 8-bit & 10-bit, mono wave files),[/size] including
-Engine cold start
-Engine warm start
-Engine idle
-Damaged Engine idle
-Engine rev up
-Engine speed steps
-Engine deceleration
-Engine stop
-5x Random track chain squeaks(proportional to engine rev)
-2x Turret rotation, one for manual crank (no engine running) one for powered (engine running)

[/size]-Barrel elevation start ( best for modern tank)
-Barrel elevation looping [size=13][size=13]( best for modern tank)
-Barrel elevation stop ( best for modern tank)
-Turret rotate start ( best for modern tank)
-Turret rotate loop ( best for modern tank)
-Turret rotate stop( best for modern tank)
-Gun shoot
-MG shoot( ex .30cal on Sherman)
-2nd MG shoot( ex .50 cal on Sherman turret)
-Hit
-Bullet bouncing
-Destroyed
-Repair
-3 user sound( voice, music)


[/size]Power(CN1):
Automatic tank shutoff at low battery voltage( threshold can be set per battery type)

Others:

Servo elevation output(J4),
External sound card interface(J5).
Dual-axial Gun barrel stabilizer support(J6, TK60G2 version)


Price range:
USD $249 ( ~ equal to IBU2 Pro + TPA) to 399(TK60G2 )
[/size]

It is? Shocked

That's great then, now you just have to buy the one version.  It'll make it easier for suppliers, they won't have carry all the different sound versions.

Yes if he can deliver on this, it will be a board to reckon with.  I think he has copied the Benedini architecture to deliver the sound, so this might be a real heavy hitting board.  Not cheap, but you are getting a lot including 15 watts of sound..

I don't think it is an accident to be priced the same as a Clark /Benedini combo.

However when it comes to sound, all the specs in the world mean little if it can't deliver smooth seemless transitions.  Clark has showcased this sound engine before and it was really good, so I think he has the ability to make good on these claims

All "bells and whistles" features are nice too.  But with all extra customation (is that even a word scratch) is the extra cost worth it in a club setting, especially a club that runs all different types of boards like Can-Am does.

I'll probably wait a couple of months after this board is out and see what the general opinion is, it does look like it will have potential though.

I am not too sure what two and half times of money gets you compared to Tk-22. It sounds like a really cool board, but then so does IBU2 and I never have any interest really to go there. It will be cool to be able to use one board for different sound/tanks, but most people don't share boards anyway. Just imagaine everytime you want to play with something for 10-15 minutes you need to spend 10 minutes to hook it up.

Anyway, good for him, but as long as he is selling Tk-22 for $100 I can't see myself upgrading. I have had an inkling of getting one IBU2 board to play with, so now I might get ONE Tk-60 to play with instead. I was also going to look into the horizontal and vertical stabilization to play with also on the modern tanks, but you can get an upgraded Tk-22G to do that.

Well the sound be awesome and at 15 watts it will be loud.

He is using onboard flash memory for the sound, meaning you can flash a prebuilt sound file onto the board in minutes.  He would be smart to use this same idea for IR settings as well and do away with the TV remote for programming.  A laptop could be set up at the registration table, and every tank that shows up could have a game file loaded into it.  Very easy to manage for the organizers, and we would start to see some really progression in IR battling.

Clark has decided to include a usb port so your can send a tank bettle files, and you won't need the Sony remote.  This is a big deal in my books.

Specific tank files can be built and then shared with club members.  A great way of getting some standardization on the uniquely programmable Clark.

Can am could build tanks files that are required.  When someone shows up they download the file into their tank and away you go.  These can be tailored for each model of tank, so all Sherman 76's would share a common file.  This will make it great for club use.
