NEW GUIDE: DC, Servo, Stepper Motors, and Solenoids with the Pico @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit #raspberrypipico
You’ve got a Raspberry Pi RP2040 Pico and some motors and a burning desire to get them working together. This brand new guide shows you how to wire up and control three kinds of motors (DC, stepper, servo) and a solenoid from your Pico using CircuitPython. It’s a party!
Guide pages show you how to use each type of motor with the Pico individually, plus a bonus page for adding it all together (driven by a single Pico) into one big motor display board.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
