1. INTRODUCTION AND OVERVIEW
1.0 Introduction of Interface Free Controller
IFC (Interface Free Controller) offer a new concept of developing microcontroller embedded
system and also robotics system. With IFC, no more frustration in determine hardware
interface and configuring peripheral in software. Checking few hundreds pages of data sheet
can be waved. With the concept of interfacing card, user may stack as many as 64 cards in a
system to get infinite combination of peripherals. The design aim is to offer 3 simple steps in
microcontroller system development – Configure card’s address, Stack IFC cards, Write
Program and Run!
Furthermore, with functions based software library, user save valuable time during software
development by concentrating on algorithm development. No more flipping or scrolling PIC
data sheet looking for ADCON0, T1CON or even TRISA. With just a programming hand
book, user may simply copy the header file, call comprehensive functions and it’s ready to
rock.
IFC come with a brain card (main controller) where the main program is loaded. There are
several cards available for robotics development such as control panel, 15A brush motor
driver, brushless motor controller, counter and digital input, output card and power card. This
document will focus on the Extension board, IFC-EB02. This card has been designed with
capabilities and features of:
• Industrial grade PCB.
• Every component is soldered properly and tested before board is shipped.
• 2 x External Power In terminal.
• 8 x External Power Out terminal.
• Provide a platform for IFC user to stack more IFC cards within a system and reduce
the height of IFC system if there are too many cards in the system.
• Provide 2 power extension (Power Extension A and Power Extension B) for user to
supply external power source to IFC slave card.

3. PRODUCT SPECIFICATION
3.1 Input and Output device
The output devices on EB02 are as below:
• 8 Power Out terminal which allow user to provide 12V or 24V power source to
other IFC slave cards, for example, Brush Motor card (IFC-MD15A), Brushless
Motor card (IFC-BL02) and Output card (IFC-OC04).
The input devices on EB02 are as below:
• 2 Power In terminal which need to connect to 12V or 24V power supply.
3.2 Operating Voltage
The operation voltage of IFC-EB02 is 12V. User needs to connect 12V or 24V power supply
to the Power In terminal of EB02, it is depends on the application. The 12V or 24V power
supply can come from Power card (IFC-PC00) or external battery. Please refer hardware
setup in chapter 5.0 Installation (hardware) for connecting power to Extension Board.

5. INSTALLATION (HARDWARE)
IFC-EB02 provides a platform for IFC user to stack more IFC cards within a system and
reduce the height of IFC system if there are too many cards in the system. There are 2
separated power extension on IFC-EB02, which are Power Extension A and Power Extension
B. However, these 2 power extensions share the communication bus on EB02. This allows
the cards stack on Power Extension A and Power Extension B to communicate through the
communication bus and side connector.
For the hardware installation of IFC-EB02, user may first stack the Main Board card (IFCMB00) and Power Card (IFC-PC00) on either Power Extension A or Power Extension B.
IFC-MB00 is the main controller of the IFC system while IFC-PC00 is the main power
supply of the system. For the installation of IFC-MB00 and IFC-PC00 please refer to the
user’s manual of IFC-MB00.
Next, user can stack other IFC slave cards on any side of Power extension (IFC-EB02). User
needs to make sure all the IFC cards are being stacked properly in correct orientation. Each
slave card stack on IFC-EB02 must have unique address. Figure shows the example of
stack IFC cards on IFC-EB02.

Besides stack every card in correct orientation, user must also require to ensure all card pins
are not shifted when stacking. Figures show the example of stacking cards in proper location
and example of stacking cards with shifted pins.
Ensure that all card
pins are not shifted
when stacking.

After that, connect the battery to Power Card, IFC-PC00. IFC-PC00 is the main power
supply. User need to connect IFC-PC00 with 12V battery to supply power to all IFC card. If
brushless motor used, 2 x 12V batteries is needed.
Connect 1 x 12V
battery to supply
operating voltage to
IFC. Ensure the
polarity is correct.

User may supply external power source to IFC slave card by connect the External Power Out
Terminal from any side of Power extension (IFC-EB02). Figure show the example
connection from External Power Out to IFC slave card.
External power source
from IFC-PC00
External power
source from 2 x 12V

Note: The voltage connected to Power In Terminal on Power extension is equal to the
voltage supply to Power Out Terminal. For example, supply 12V to Power In Terminal
on Power Extension A, the output voltage from 4 x Power Out Terminal on Power
Extension A are equal to 12V. When connect external power source for IFC slave cards
from IFC-EB02, please ensure the voltage supply to Power In Terminal on Power
Extension is compatible with the require external power source of the slave card.
