This Servo Driver Breakout Board is compatible with micro:bit. It has 16 output (Servo / PWM) channels with each channel receiving a 12-bit resolution. The micro:bit Servo Driver Breakout Board uses an I2C control interface and also supports control boards using the reserved I2C control pins.

The 16 output channels on the micro:bit Servo Driver Breakout Board make it possible to work on advanced applications that need more servo channels to control multiple servos. The standard servo interface on the servo driver breakout board is compatible with many popular servos. This driver board is suitable for robotic arm control applications and advanced robotic functions.
