1. How would I attach a servo to the beaglebone?
  2. Could I use Seeedstudio Grove with the beaglebone?

That should work. But I belive it is 5v so if it is you need to level shift from 3.3v to 5v.

Or you can look at one of the motor capes that already exist.


Is the level shift something complicated to do for a newbe?

No. Go to and you can buy a small board. They have instructions on how to do it.


For driving the servos has any one had good experience with any BB specific servo libraries? Any language is fine.

This one is in python:

BTW: I used to hook up my servos directly to the beaglebone and had no problems with it so far.
