Servo implementation (pi gpio or Creator mcu gpio)

I’m looking at controlling several servos jitter free but I’m unclear if the servo object implementation uses the raspberry pi gpio, which might result in PMW timing issues, or the Creator mcu gpio and automatically handles the comms back to the pi when using Matrix OS/node.

If these are the pi controlling the PMW then I’d appreciate some advice in adding a mcu (I have a Teensy 3.0 available) and the comms from a Matrix OS app.

Thanks

Hi @StrangeAngle,

The servo implementation that deals with the timing is in the FPGA, so you should not have any issues regarding timing and its performance is not related to the Raspberry Pi.

Hope this help,

Yoel,

Thanks very much that’s great to hear!
