There are places in the U.S. that can make PCBs for much less than that.
I've not been able to find one. In most cases, there is a setup charge that makes small lots uneconomical.
Places I have tried were not able to accomodate combining small boards into a panel for unique users.
I suppose if you wanted to take on that task, as dorkbot/patchpcb has done, and with a US manufacturer, you might make a go of it.

Someone mentioned 8V and 130C.
I'm pretty sure 8V will blow the chip. I know from experience that 12V kills it immediately.
If you want to run at 130C, I suggest you try an automotive part and cross your fingers as you pass the Absolute Maximum:
0 - 16 MHz @ 4.5 - 5.5V (Automotive Temp. Range: -40°C to +125°C)

Still plugging away?

D0, D1

'1284P, 16K SRAM.
Need more than that? Add external.
9696  Products / Arduino GSM Shield / Re: Can't locate TX and RX on my GSM board on: July 13, 2013, 08:06:03 pm
I'd go with D0 and D1.

How will you mount the pen dead center and have room to move it up & down if the control  boards are there?
Maybe mount the control boards vertically instead of laying flat on the chassis?

Your call.
How expandable are they if you decide to make something more out of it?

Running the 0-5V PWM thru a lowpass filter will create a smoothing effect that will appear as a lower voltage.

That's why I was asking about jitter as they powered up earlier.
I think try with one two both ways with representative components and see how it works.

I don't know if the PL2303 chips have a DTR pin on them, never looked them up, that's why I suggested them for non-DTR use.

I would think that approach would require 48 sets of fairly hefty current switching transistors, MOSFETs, whatever, depending on the servo needed.
Vs 1 really hefty switch and a simple set of logic level demux chips.
Either way could be made to work.

Serial.print will slow things down some, you can remove it after confirm the levels are as expected.

analogRead returns an int.
100 x 25 = 2500, still an int.
use the modulo command to split the number up into its digits

There you go.
