The SparkFun Servo pHAT is an add-on board for Raspberry Pi that allows easy control of up to 16 servo motors via an I2C connection. It saves GPIO pins for other uses and includes a serial terminal connection for Raspberry Pi setup without a monitor or keyboard. It features a Qwiic connector for simple interfacing, a 4-pin header for connecting to the Sphero RVR robot, and a USB-C connector for the power supply. The board has 16 PWM channels, standard servo pin headers, and compatibility with both Raspberry Pi Zero/Zero W and regular Raspberry Pi models. It also incorporates power protection circuits, updated logic level conversion, and a CH340C USB Serial chip for communication.
