The Pololu Micro and Mini Maestros raise the performance bar for serial servo controllers with features such as a native USB interface and internal scripting control. Whether you want the best servo control available or a general I/O controller, these compact, versatile devices will deliver.

Radio control hobby servos in a variety of sizes. With integrated motor-control circuitry and position feedback, servos are an easy way to add controlled motion to your robotics or electronics project. Whatever your application, we probably have a servo for it!

The Pololu A-Star microcontroller boards are general-purpose programmable modules based on Atmel AVR microcontrollers. A USB interface and preloaded Arduino-compatible bootloader on each A* makes it easy to get started programming them.

Pololu’s Orangutan robot controllers are complete control solutions for small and medium robots or similar projects. All Orangutans feature Atmel AVR microcontrollers and multiple H-bridges for direct control of DC motors. Most units have integrated LCD displays.

Take command of the speed and direction of your brushed DC motors using these controllers. This category includes single and dual serial motor controllers with a variety of features such as analog, RC, or USB control, speed/position feedback, channel mixing, and more.

Single and dual motor driver carriers get your brushed DC motor projects up and running quickly using modern H-bridges with high-performance MOSFETs that deliver hundreds of watts in a compact package. Give these boards a PWM signal and make your motors go!

Our wide selection of DC motors, geared DC motors, and stepper motors will help you find the perfect blend of torque and speed for your project.

Ensure your project gets the voltage it needs with these voltage regulator boards and wall-adapter power supplies.

These IR distance sensors make it easy to detect and range objects. Our Sharp sensors are less expensive than our sonar range finders and they have higher update rates, but their maximum detection range is shorter.

These FSRs and FSLPs from Interlink Electronics can sense the magnitude, and in some cases the location, of an applied force, enabling unique touch interfaces and tactile sensors.

Discrete LEDs and RGB LED modules for use in indicators and displays.

Servo extension cables, USB cables, jumper wire kits, and more!

An assortment of switches, buttons, and relays that can serve as user-interface elements, tactile sensors, power switches, and more.
