Product Description

Our flagship board Genesis, includes Arduino Nano, powerful 3A motor drivers, 0,5 Ampere 5V regulator and complementary circuits for your robot project.

Technical Specs:

  • Vin: 8V – 24V (Max 28V)
  • Current at Idle: 5ma (All Board)
  • Motor Currents: Continous 3 Ampere x 2, Burst 4 Ampere x 2.
  • 5V Regulator Output Current: Maximum 1 Ampere
  • Built-in temperature, current and overvoltage shutdown circuits at motor controller ICs.
  • Built-in short circuit protection at power lines.
  • Just 98mm x 38mm x 18mm sized.
  • 4 Mount holes have 3,2 mm diameter, suitable for M3 sized screws.
  • Board weight is 33 grams.

Main Purposes of Genesis

  • Mini sumo robots (As usual)
  • Line Following Robots
  • Small – Middle size robots
  • Arduino Uno based robots (Arduino Uno & Nano models use same microcontroller)

If you want to use Arduino Nano at your robot project (Minisumo, line follower etc…). This board must be your first choice. Small size and high power in your hand.

With high-quality components and strong infrastructure; Genesis will be your favorite board.

Here how we connected Arduino Nano’s pins to mainboard. It will help you while you are programming. (By the way, we have ready made program)

Thin Speaker

We didn’t used moderate speaker at Genesis. We choosed highest quality speaker for clear & loud sound. You can send output any tone by sending frequency to this speaker.


Start Module Button & Input

At the board, it has one start button which is parallel connected to start module input pin. The board is fully compatible with start modules. When you push the button it send Logic 1 (5V) signal to Arduino Nano.



Genesis Board contains 2×3 pin dipswitch for total 8 starting tactics (for mini sumo robots) Except mini sumo, the dipswitch can be used for any purpose.



Genesis contains 4 motor direction leds (2 Right, 2 Left), 1 Power led and 1 Mode Led. With indicator leds you know the robot’s behaviour easily.


Sensor Inputs / Outputs (8 Line)

Each sensor input has 3 pins (-,+,s) and clearly written name. You can plug female cables directly. Signal pins connected to Arduino Nano with small value series resistors for safety. You can connect up to 8 different control element to this pins.


2 Trimpots for Fine Tuning

We added 2 Bourns SMD trimpots for fine tuning, on-board programming with your robot. They are directly connected to Arduino Nano’s analog pins (A6 – A7)

What is More? Why you should prefer Genesis?

SMPS Regulator + Capacitors

At the Genesis’s heart, we use 570 kHz high-speed switching mode regulator. With combined multilayer ceramic capacitors, electrolytic capacitors and tantalum capacitor, Board’s voltage output is pure 5V for adding sensors. Voltage Regulator also has short circuit protection. 

High Current Mosfet Drivers

Genesis uses 2 Mosfet driver for giving high current to motors. Thanks to modern MOSFET bridge design; power sent to motors have nearly zero loss. Each motor driver connected with 2 PWM channel. So in total Arduino Nano’s 2 PWM channel is used for controlling 2 dc motors up to 3 Ampere each.

On-Board Programming

We inspired from Japan sumo robots while creating that board. That robots use multiple trimpots for saving important variables for working program. Also Genesis include 2 trimpots for same purpose. That trimpots directly connected to Arduino Nano’s analog pins (A6, A7). And for Mini sumo robot they serve as Idle Speed, Starting Turn Time, and Edge sensor seen Turn time changers. SPD: Idle Speed while not opponent seen, TRN: Starting Turn Time, Angle Trimpot.

Based On Arduino Nano

At the heart of Genesis, it uses Arduino Nano for micro controlling unit. Which is miniature version of Arduino Uno. You can easily upload, debug programs by open source Arduino community. Learning Arduino is very easy. If you plan to use that board for minisumo we have well written, commented Arduino program for you also.



Every Genesis shipped with Mini USB B cable, so you can program fastly when you take package.

Frequently Asked Questions

Arduino Nano has hardware USB-Serial converter chip at bottom side. That chip makes connection with computer without interruption. On the other side Arduino Micro models use USB-Serial converter as firmware (at software) that can cause problems at some computers.

Yes! Firstly, each Genesis Mainboard is tested before shipment. So when you handled Genesis, it will work flawlessly. What is more? We are giving full support for our products. We help you at connections, programming and developing. No problem! 😉

  1. i received this item and found very time save for me ,instead of connecting a lot of boards to each other it have them all in 1 board

  2. with this card I have everything I need to develop the minisumo is all in one : sensors, motor control , power .. excellent product. I liked much on issues of quality, price and size advantages besides being SMD . The only question is missing welds there a little better : D

  3. Greetings from Mexico! Perfect board for mini sumo robots. I made 3 different robots with them for our Copa Challange. They never burnt. Sensor inputs are well designed. Everything is well planned for attaching.
    Input voltage is very broad. I am using one board with 4S battery with no heating at anything. I suggest you to use with Core 575 RPM Dc Motors for fast Project.

  4. Wonderfull controller, I liked the functionality and easiness. Perfect for mini sumo robot projects.

  5. A good microcontroller. It is compact, space and weight efficient. Good for sumobot. I even used this in 1kg robot, and jsumo didnt fail me. I won. Love this product. More power jsumo!
