PicoBorg - Control small motors from your Raspberry Pi


With PicoBorg, you can turn on and off fans, motors, solenoids, relays etc. from your Raspberry Pi.

There are 4 low side drivers so you can turn on and off 4 devices
One is connected to the RPi PWM pin, so you can vary duty cycle (normally vary speed).
Update PicoBorg now comes with a 2A fuse and pull down resistors.
