Like some electronics, this linear motion Pico servo doesn't like running at over 5V. Even slightly less is better. This adapter board adds a bit of voltage drop to a 5/6V system to make your servo happy.


Description [Hide]

The 22090 Pico linear servo is a very cool device, but really doesn't like being run over 5V. To ensure that it's kept at this lower voltage level when being used on a 5 or 6V system, we put together this inexpensive voltage-drop adapter board. It's not as good as a dedicated 3.7V regulator, but in our tests, it's worked out just fine!

Kit includes:

  • 1N4007 Rectifier Diodes (used to drop voltage) x 2
  • Linear Servo Adapter PCB
  • 3 pin JST connector, 1.5mm spacing
  • Male pin strip, 3 positions (interfaces to female servo cable)

You might want to get an appropriate servo cable, depending on your use!

PCA9306 Level Translator Breakout

Sometimes, voltages collide. When you have parts that expect/speak at different voltage levels, you have to build a mediator to smooth things out. This SparkFun BOB-10403 uses PCA9306 two-channel bidirectional voltage-level translator on a nice, small breakout board.
