I was looking through the other FEZ products and I noticed the 16 Channel servo board, and I have a couple of questions.
The board has a I2C interface but the brochure talks about a serial connection. Which is the one the FEZ mini uses?
Also with servos, they need to be refreshed constantly otherwise they go into a powerdown state. When one issues the servo command does that tell the servo board to handle the refreshing also or do you need to write code to do the refresh?
When the board is first powered - does it set the servo’s to a particular position or does this happen upon the first access to the servo. Sometimes a servo needs to start at a non-midway position.
Is there anyway to turn off a servo once initalised, sometime it is handy to power down a servo when batteries run low and you need to conserve power, or when it is nolonger critical to maintain a position.
Many thanks for any advice/comments
