You want to make a cool Arduino robot with ARC? Maybe a hexapod walker, or a piece of art with a lot of moving parts. This is Adafruit's popular PWM/Servo Breakout that works with any Arduino that uses shields: Uno, Leo, Mega, or ADK.

We recommend using the Uno, because it is compact and combined with this shield, provides a ton of I/O. If you require more than 16 servos, we also recommend the EZ-Robot EZ-B v4.

The UNO can be programmed with the EZB firmware for a variety of capabilities when connected to ARC. The tutorial to program the EZB firmware can be found HERE. This hardware was added to ARC in this beta release and newer.

Hi just wanted to know if there was any support for using this servo controller with raspberry pi and an Arduino
Install ARC on a windows pc. Install the ezb firmware on this servo controller and connect to it. The instructions are above

here it is with the Arduino with the PCA9685

Downloaded Mickeys andDJ's firmware 

modified their code, added Adafruit_PWMServoDriver pca9685 = Adafruit_PWMServoDriver(0x40);

in setup added:

// Initialize PCA9685

// Set PWM Frequency to 50Hz

tried 3v and 5v
