- Micro Maestro 6-Channel USB Servo Controller (Assembled)
- Micro Maestro 12-Channel USB Servo Controller (Assembled)
- Micro Maestro 18-Channel USB Servo Controller (Assembled)
- Micro Maestro 24-Channel USB Servo Controller (Assembled)
- Three control methods: USB, TTL (5V) serial, and internal scripting
- 0.25?s output pulse width resolution (corresponds to approximately 0.025° for a typical servo, which is beyond what the servo could resolve)
- Pulse rate configurable from 33 to 100 Hz (2)
- Wide pulse range of 64 to 3280 ?s (2)
- Individual speed and acceleration control for each channel
- Channels can be optionally configured to go to a specified position or turn off on startup or error
- Channels can also be used as general-purpose digital outputs or analog inputs
- A simple scripting language lets you program the controller to perform complex actions even after its USB and serial connections are removed
- Comprehensive user?s guide
- Free configuration and control application for Windows makes it easy to:
- Configure and test your controller
- Create, run, and save sequences of servo movements for animatronics and walking robots
- Write, step through, and run scripts stored in the servo controller
- Two ways to write software to control the Maestro from a PC:
- Virtual COM port makes it easy to send serial commands from any development environment that supports serial communication
- Pololu USB Software Development Kit allows use of more advanced native USB commands and includes example code in C#, Visual Basic .NET, and Visual C++
- TTL serial features:
- Supports 300 ? 200000 bps in fixed-baud mode, 300 ? 115200 bps in autodetect-baud mode (2)
- Simultaneously supports the Pololu protocol, which gives access to advanced functionality, and the simpler Scott Edwards MiniSSC II protocol (there is no need to configure the device for a particular protocol mode)
- Can be daisy-chained with other Pololu servo and motor controllers using a single serial transmit line
- Can function as a general-purpose USB-to-TTL serial adapter for projects controlled from a PC
- Board can be powered off of USB or a 5 ? 16 V battery, and it makes the regulated 5V available to the user
- Compact size of 0.85" × 1.20" (2.16 × 3.05 cm) and light weight of 0.17 oz (4.8 g) with headers

- 1 This is the weight of the board without header pins or terminal blocks.
- 2 The available pulse rate and range depend on each other and factors such as baud rate and number of channels used. See the Maestro User?s Guide for details.
- 3 The user script system is more powerful on the Mini Maestro than on the Micro Maestro. See See the Maestro User?s Guide for details.
- Serial servo controller for multi-servo projects (e.g. robot arms, animatronics) based on BASIC Stamp or Arduino platforms.
- PC-based servo control over USB port
- PC-based control of motors by interfacing with an ESC over USB
- PC interface for sensors and other electronics:
- Read a gyro or accelerometer from a PC for novel user interfaces
- Control a string of ShiftBrites from a PC for mood lighting
- General I/O expansion for microcontroller projects
- Programmable, self-contained Halloween or Christmas display controller that responds to sensors. The picture to the right and the video below show a self-contained hexapod robot that uses three micro servos and two digital distance sensors for autonomous walking.
- Self-contained servo tester
