New Tutorial: Controlling the Adafruit16-Channel Servo Driver with Arduino @ Adafruit Learning System

New Tutorial: Controlling the Adafruit16-Channel Servo Driver with Arduino @ Adafruit Learning System

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.

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.

  1. Yay! This will be the push I needed to dive into an LED project I bought this board for!
