I have my first Micro Maestro 6 successfully driving my servo and now I am looking for some advice on using the analog input.
The documentation says:
The inputs on channels 0–11 are analog: their values range from 0 to 255.75, representing voltages from 0 to 5 V
I am starting with a standard mp3 style audio out, the louder the audio the further the servo should move, quiet moving back to the start position.
Before I go too much further I am looking for some suggestions…
Because by input voltage is not 0-5VDC do I try to use the input I have and adjust for the appropriate movement in programming?
Or do I need to look at something like a single supply rail to rail op amp, perhaps with an offset to get the signal into the 0-5VDC range? If so can anyone suggest some parts / products (small) that they think would be the best option?
Perhaps there are better options I am not even aware of, I don’t have a lot of space and a single 5VDC supply but am open to any recommendations.
