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.
- 4 fans on/off control over all and vary speed on one fan
- 4 solenoids
- 4 DC motors (on / off control over all and vary speed on one motor)
- or a combination of these
- or control one 6 wire stepper motor in both directions
Voltage and current range Max 20V recommended 12V or less Max current 2.0A (stall) or less Continuous current recommended <= 1A Uses GPIO pins GATE 1 - GPIO_4 GATE 2 - GPIO_18_PWM* GATE 3 - GPIO_8 GATE 4 - GPIO_7 *alternate pin GPIO_25 via R1 / DNF resistor change Please read the warnings in the Specification section
