TinyDuino + Motor TinyShield

TinyDuino + Motor TinyShield
« on: May 23, 2014, 02:25:20 PM »
From my other post you may have seen that I'm trying to figure out how to create a "custom servo" using a motorized fader.

I'm now considering the possibility of doing this with the existing tinyduino units. If I connect a Tiny Motor Shield (4x) to a TinyDuino, I would theoretically be able to control 4 virtual servos.

There are then 3 questions:

1. With a motor shield attached, are there any remaining analog input pins that I can use for monitoring the slide pot?
2. Is there any way to network multiple TinyDuinos together?
3. Would the "lilly" version of TinyDuino / Tiny Motor be a better fit for this approach?

Hi Oronymo,

I have not played with the servo control before, but the specs show it only using A3. You should still have 5 other analog pins. You can master/slave Tinydruino together. There is another forum post that shows an example. Hope that helps.
