It’s @Fritzing Friday: PWM Drivers, OLEDs, and More!

 

Earlier this week, I did a round up of Fritzing parts I added over the weekend. Since then, I’ve added a few more cool boards our growing Fritzing Library that I wanted to share. It’s also Friday, and I’m contractually obligated to bring you awesome stuff on Friday, so here we go! :)

First up, the PCA9685 16×12-bit Servo PWM board (above), which is capable of driving up to 16 servo motors at once. All those motors need a good amount of current, so it’s best to use a separate power supply — easily added with our 2.1mm-to-terminal block adapter (above, top). The PCA9685 Fritzing part behaves just like the real part — all the GND and V+ lines are bussed together, as are the I2C terminals on either end.

Next, we’ve got our high-contrast, 128×32-pixel monochrome OLED displays, available in I2C and SPI versions.

Finally, from left to right, our ADXL335 Accelerometer breakout, our MAX31855 breakout with thermocouple, and our MCP4725 12-bit DAC board keep the data flowing in and out of your circuit.

As always, you can download our Fritzing library at GitHub!
