This helper library provides higher level objects to control motors and servos based on one or more PWM outputs.
The PWM outputs can be any object that have a 16-bit
duty_cycle attribute. Its assumed that the
frequency has already been configured appropriately. (Typically 50hz for servos and 1600hz for
This driver depends on:
Please ensure all dependencies are available on the CircuitPython filesystem. This is easily achieved by downloading the Adafruit library and driver bundle.
Installing from PyPI¶
On supported GNU/Linux systems like the Raspberry Pi, you can install the driver locally from PyPI. To install for current user:
pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-motor
To install system-wide (this may be required in some cases):
sudo pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-motor
To install in a virtual environment in your current project:
mkdir project-name && cd project-name python3 -m venv .env source .env/bin/activate pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-motor
