Pi Zero + Motor HAT + Servo HAT in the same time

Fri May 24, 2019 7:41 am

Hello friends...
I have a question. Is it possible to connect these two modules at once:

https://www.waveshare.com/wiki/Motor_Driver_HAT
and
https://www.waveshare.com/wiki/Servo_Driver_HAT


Is it possible that they work at the same time. Means one controlled 2 motors 12v and the other controlled 4 servo and lighting 6 outputs ??
I only ask if it is possible because I want to give the order to someone in Python.
Thank you for your answer...

A quick look at the information in the links suggests it should be possible as these are no try hats but I2c devices that have the means on board to change there address.

The motor driver board suggests you could control a number of motors which suggests stacking of that board is expected as the number suggested is more than one board supports.

You would need to set each with its own address so there is no conflict, but there seems to be good documentation with each so you just need to read and understand the information supplied.
