Using "servo package" without GoPiGo connected to GPIO raspberry pi connector


#1

Hi!

Is it possible connect servo package not to GoPiGo but to GPIO Raspberry Pi port and control it using GPIO library without GoPiGo?

Signal, positive and negative pins in GoPiGo board has the values: 3.5 V, 5 V and GND?

Thanks

I found an old tutorial from Adafruit which does that: https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruits-raspberry-pi-lesson-8-using-a-servo-motor?view=all. Just try to be a bit careful with the pins because you can accidentally short the Pi and I won;t really recommend using this method because the Servo generates a lot of noise which can make the Pi unstable and do not use the onboard power to power the servo, only use an external power because the voltage can fluctuate a lot when you are using the servo which is not good for the Pi.
