Driving servo motors with the Arduino Servo library is pretty easy, but each one consumes a precious pin – not to mention some Arduino processing power. The Adafruit 16-Channel 12-bit PWM/Servo Driver will drive up to 16 servos over I2C with only 2 pins. The on-board PWM controller will drive all 16 channels simultaneously with no additional Arduino processing overhead. What’s more, you can chain up to 62 of them to control up to 992 servos – all with the same 2 pins!
The Adafruit PWM/Servo Driver is the perfect solution for any project that requires a lot of servos.
