The Servo:Lite board for the BBC micro:bit can form the control hub for your robotics project. Control up to three servos, and it has 5 x RGB ZIP LEDs on board!

Description:

The Servo:Lite board for the BBC micro:bit is a simple board that allows you to easily connect and control low-power servo motors (servos must be capable of operating at 3.3V) using the BBC micro:bit. It is connected to the micro:bit using five bolts. Connect two servos in standard configuration, drive up to 3 servos if the addressable 'ZIP' LEDs arent needed.

The Servo:Lite is powered by 3 AAA batteries, and also supplies power to the BBC micro:bit. The board features an on/off switch, so when it's not in use the batteries won't drain.
