16 Channel Servo Shield 12-bit PWM Servo Controller PCA9685 is the perfect solution for any project that requires a lot of servos!

This 16 Channel Servo Shield is perfect if you want to build a robot, perhaps a hexapod or a project that requires several components that require movement. This 16-Channel PWM Servo Controller Shield brings the I2C bus up from the Arduino and coupled with a PCA9685 provides 16-channel 12-bit PWM.

16 Channel Servo Shield can be used to drive up to 16 servo motors or LEDs. It is also ideal in controlling many LEDs with precise PWM signal and perform microprocessor has a limited number of PWM pin. For this applications, the shield of servo-motors with PWM driver is the product you are looking for. Using this shield, 16-pin PWM can be controlled with just 2 pins I2C interface.

Driving servo motors with the Arduino Servo library is pretty easy, but each one consumes a precious pin – not to mention some Arduino processing power. The 16-Channel 12-bit PWM/Servo Driver Shield will drive up to 16 servos over I2C with only 2 pins. The on-board PWM controller will drive all 16 channels simultaneously with no additional Arduino processing overhead. What’s more, you can stack up to 62 of them to control even more servos – all with the same 2 pins!
The 16 Channel Servo Shield is compatible with UNO, Mega, Leonardo and similar Arduinos. Since the shield operates from I2C, all of the Arduino pins remain available for other uses and are brought up to the top surface for easy access. In addition, there is a 5 x 20 perf board section for general prototyping.

Features: –

  • 16 Channels of individually controllable PWM using PCA9685 Chip
  • PWM / Ground / 5V pins for each servo
  • I2C Interface
  • 24Hz to 1.5KHz PWM frequency range w/ 12-bit resolution

16 Channel Servo Shield Specifications: –

  • Using only two pins, control 16 free-running PWM outputs! You can even chain up 62 breakouts to control up to 992 PWM outputs
  • It’s an I2C-controlled PWM driver with a built in clock. That means that, unlike the TLC5940 family, you do not need to continuously send it signal tying up your microcontroller, its completely free running!
  • It is 5V compliant, which means you can control it from a 3.3V microcontroller and still safely drive up to 6V outputs (this is good for when you want to control white or blue LEDs with 3.4+ forward voltages)
  • 6 address select pins so you can wire up to 62 of these on a single i2c bus, a total of 992 outputs that’s a lot of servos or LEDs
  • Adjustable frequency PWM up to about 1.6 KHz
  • 12-bit resolution for each output – for servos, that means about 4us resolution at 60Hz update rate
  • Configurable push-pull or open-drain output
  • Output enable pin to quickly disable all the outputs
  • Terminal block for power input (or you can use the 0.1″ breakouts on the side)
  • Reverse polarity protection on the terminal block input
  • Green power-good LED
  • 3 pin connectors in groups of 4 so you can plug in 16 servos at once (Servo plugs are slightly wider than 0.1″ so you can only stack 4 next to each other on 0.1″ header
  • “Chain-able” design
  • A spot to place a big capacitor on the V+ line (in case you need it)
  • 330 ohm series resistors on all the output lines to protect them, and to make driving LEDs trivial
  • Solder jumpers for the 6 address select pins
