Adafruit Raspberry Pi PWM Servo Hat Development Board

Adafruit Raspberry Pi PWM Servo Hat Development Board

Regular price $0.00 $24.08 Sale

Key Features:

  • 16-Channel 12-bit PWM/Servo HAT drives up to 16 servos or PWM outputs over I2C with only 2 pins.
  • Stack up to 62 of them to control up to 992 servos - all with the same 2 pins!
  • It can also do PWM up to 1.6 KHz with 12 bit precision, all completely free-running.
  • This kit does not come with Raspberry Pi, servos, or required 5V power supply.

The Raspberry Pi is a wonderful little computer, but one thing it isn't very good at is controlling DC Servo Motors - these motors need very specific and repetitive timing pulses to set the position. Instead of asking the Pi Linux kernel to send these signals, pop on this handy HAT! It adds the capability to control 16 Servos with perfect timing. Best of all, Adafruit even has a Python library you can use, so you'll be up and running instantly, to make your robotic creation com to life. The Adafruit PWM/Servo HAT is the perfect solution for any project that requires a lot of servos or PWM outputs! You'll need to do some light through-hole soldering to attach the headers onto the HAT circuit board, but its easy to do with basic soldering tools like a soldering iron and rosin core electronics solder. If you would like to stack multiple HATs onto one Pi, you can also pick up a 2x20 stacking header and a set of right-angle 3x4 headers that should be soldered on instead. Please note! This kit does not come with Raspberry Pi, servos, or required 5V power supply.
