Description[edit]

This board can control up to 8 RC servos via the onboard Pololu chip. A simple serial line from the Linuxstamp II controls the Pololu chip. There is also a prototyping area with access to power as well as UART, SPI, I2C & GPIO lines from the Linuxstamp II.

Status[edit]

You can get a board from thelinuxstamp.com.

Power supply[edit]

There are two options for the poser supply. Most of the time a 1.5A linear regulator from ST should be fine (digikey p/n 497-3468-1-ND). However if more current is needed a switching power supply from Recom can be used (digikey p/n 945-1028-ND).

Mounting[edit]

The mounting holes on the board are designed to match the boebot Chassis. So the board can be used with continuous rotation servos to make a little rover.
