Adafruit 16-Channel 12-bit PWM/Servo Shield
Looking to build an Arduino based robot? Drive a ton of LEDs with a very precise PWM output? The Arduino R3 family of boards only has a limited number of PWM pins – this shield adds an additional 16 PWM channels, each with 12 Bit resolution!
Looking to build an Arduino based robot? Drive a ton of LEDs with a very precise PWM output? The Arduino R3 family of boards only has a limited number of PWM pins – this shield adds an additional 16 PWM channels, each with 12 Bit resolution! Since this board communicates using I2C, up to 62 of these boards can be used on the same Arduino. That means you can control up to 992 PWM outputs!
This shield does not need continuous signal to keep running, the internal PWM driver with built in clock takes care of all the dirty work so your Arduino is not tied up continuously sending instructions.
While the board does include standard 4×3 male headers for the PWM outputs, we do carry a right angle version that is much better suited if this board is stacked between other shields. A 470uF 25V is recommended and can be soldered into the PCB footprint (capacitor not included).
- 16 PWM Channels
- PWM Frequency is adjustable up to ~1.6KHz
- Terminal block for power input
- Reverse polarity protection on power in
- Drop-in compatible with Arduino Uno, Due, Leonardo and Mega R3.
- 12 Bit Resolution (4us resolution at 60Hz for servos)
- Configurable push-pull or open-drain output
- 220 ohm series resistors on all the output lines
- Solder jumpers for the 6 address select pins
- 1 x Adafruit 16-Channel 12-bit PWM/Servo Shield
