Controlling 3 Servos With The Servo:Lite board

Controlling 3 Servos With The Servo:Lite board

By default the Servo:Lite board for the :MOVE mini buggy kit is capable of driving its 5 ZIP LEDs in conjunction with two servos. In this resource for the Servo:Lite board we are going to cover how you can ‘hack’ the board to facilitate the driving of three servos. It’s important to note that we included this as a feature and as such we ensured that not only is the ‘hack’ very easy to do, it is also easy to reverse. Also, the ‘hack’ disables the onboard ZIP LEDs, reversing the ‘hack’... Read more

Build A Klawsome microbit Controlled Tank

Build A Klawsome microbit Controlled Tank

Kitronik Technical Director Dave Sanderson can often be found taking to twitter and sharing the goings on in the design and development office at Kitronik HQ.

The tweeting has prompted a good number of requests for a tutorial on how to make the tank and how to control it. Dave did a new build and recorded the process. There are also downloads for the DXF file... Read more

Using PWM with the Kitronik Motor Driver Board

Using PWM with the Kitronik Motor Driver Board

Way back when we first released our Motor Driver Board the microbit Block Editor only allowed digital write on the pins we used for controlling motors. This meant that motors had to be full on or off. Thanks to an update in the PXT editor you can now use PWM to control the motors and therefore the speed of your buggy. What is PWM? PWM or Pulse Width Modulation is a way of varying power into a pulsing signal. This lets us control how much power is sent to the motors by controlling the pulse. When... Read more
