Tom’s Hardware reviews the Pimoroni Servo 2040 #PiDay #RaspberryPi @Pimoroni @TomsHardware @Raspberry_Pi
Tom’s Hardware recently reviewed the new Pimoroni Servo 2040:
There is a lot to like about Servo 2040. The hardware and software are great and the choice between MicroPython and CircuitPython means we have the best of both worlds. Its nicheness will work against it, but for those that need a tiny robot platform, this is it.
We tested the Pimoroni Servo 2040 using MicroPython and CircuitPython. Pimoroni has created a new version of its MicroPython release which provides support for Servo 2040, and it seems that roboticist and developer Chris Parrott has poured a lot of love into the software that supports this project. The MicroPython modules for Servo 2040 are well documented and robust. We are seeing great hardware and software backed by great documentation.
For our MicroPython test, we elected to use the Pimoroni’s version which also supports CircuitPython libraries. We wanted to test a few Stemma QT devices with MicroPython and this seemed like a great fit. We ran through Pimoroni’s examples, testing single and multiple servos. Everything went extremely smoothly.
