It’s @Fritzing Friday: PWM Drivers, OLEDs, and More!

 

Earlier this week, I did a round up of Fritzing parts I added over the weekend. Since then, I’ve added a few more cool boards our growing Fritzing Library that I wanted to share. It’s also Friday, and I’m contractually obligated to bring you awesome stuff on Friday, so here we go! 🙂

First up, the PCA9685 16×12-bit Servo PWM board (above), which is capable of driving up to 16 servo motors at once. All those motors need a good amount of current, so it’s best to use a separate power supply — easily added with our 2.1mm-to-terminal block adapter (above, top). The PCA9685 Fritzing part behaves just like the real part — all the GND and V+ lines are bussed together, as are the I2C terminals on either end.

Next, we’ve got our high-contrast, 128×32-pixel monochrome OLED displays, available in I2C and SPI versions.

Finally, from left to right, our ADXL335 Accelerometer breakout, our MAX31855 breakout with thermocouple, and our MCP4725 12-bit DAC board keep the data flowing in and out of your circuit.

As always, you can download our Fritzing library at GitHub!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
