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.

Example uses

  • 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
