The Micro Maestro is the first of Pololu’s second-generation USB servo controllers. It features three (yes three!) control methods...
- USB for direct connection to a PC computer
- TTL serial for use with embedded systems
- Internal scripting for self-contained, host controller-free applications.
In addition, the module boasts channels that can be configured as servo outputs for use with radio control (RC) servos or electronic speed controls (ESCs), digital outputs, or analog inputs. The extremely accurate, high-resolution servo pulses have a jitter of less than 200 ns, making this servo controller well suited for high-precision animatronics. Built-in speed and acceleration control make it easy to achieve smooth, seamless movements without requiring the control source to constantly compute and stream intermediate position updates to the Micro Maestro.
This fully assembled version of the Micro Maestro ships with 0.1" male header pins soldered as shown in the product picture. A USB A to mini-B cable (not included) is required to connect this device to a computer.
