How to Make a Servo Shield on Prototype PCB




For my future projects I decided to make a simple servo shield on prototype PCB. With this shield you can control up to four servo motors, but it is always possible to modify the shield adding more pins for more servos.

    I'm having trouble figuring out how the pins connect from your pictures. Any way you can send the schematics?


    I have made several of these. Making them yourself is so much cheaper than buying a commercial servo shield.
