Provides eight additional PWM signals, as well as eight pulse-measuring inputs. These can be used to measure pulses from flow sensors for example, but its main purpose is RC robotics. The inputs can be used to connect any RC receiver from two to eight channels. The receiver simply generates pulses matching the knob positions. Inputs are capable of measuring up to 1KHz signal.
The output PWMs can be use to control servo motors directly or brushed and brush-less motors through appropriate controllers. Advanced developers can take advantage of the 50 Mhz processor used on this module to handle specific tight-timing robotic needs by modifying the open-source C-language software.
