Description [Hide]

This is SparkFun's version of the OpenServo open-source servo controller board, which is designed to replace the existing controller board in any standard servo (~.78 inch servo width).

With this board you can control a servo entirely with I2C/TWI commands rather than PWM, meaning that multiple OpenServos can be controlled with just two lines from a microcontroller like a Freeduino SB or Arduino!

The OpenServo firmware also offers some interesting control features, such as:

  • Querying a servo with an unknown position
  • Setting control gain discretely and on-the-fly
  • Querying the destination of the actuator before it reaches it
