PWM

Raspbery pi

Kervi supports software generated pwm on the Raspberry pi’s gpio pins.

PCA9685(I2C)

PCA9685 is a 16 channel pwm generator that may be used to control LEDSs and servos.

PCA9685DeviceDriver(
    address=0x39,
    bus=0
)
address:I2C address. Default is 0x39
bus:I2C bus. If 0 or None default bus for platform is selected.
