Board(port, layout=None, baudrate=57600, name=None, timeout=None)¶
The Base class for any board.
Adds a command handler for a command.
Automatic setup based on Firmata’s “Capability Query”
Call this to exit cleanly.
Returns a version tuple (major, minor) for the firmata firmware on the board.
Returns the activated pin given by the pin definition. May raise an
Parameters: pin_def – Pin definition as described below, but without the arduino name. So for example
‘a’ analog pin Pin number ‘i’ for input ‘d’ digital pin Pin number ‘o’ for output‘p’ for pwm (Pulse-width modulation)
All seperated by
Reads and handles data from the microcontroller over the serial port. This method should be called in a main loop or in an
Iteratorinstance to keep this boards pin values up to date.
Non-blocking time-out for
Sends a SysEx msg.
Parameters: sysex_cmd – A sysex command byte
: arg data: a bytearray of 7-bit bytes of arbitrary data
servo_config(pin, min_pulse=544, max_pulse=2400, angle=0)¶
Configure a pin as servo with min_pulse, max_pulse and first angle.
max_pulsedefault to the arduino defaults.
Setup the Pin instances based on the given board layout.
Pin(board, pin_number, type=2, port=None)¶
A Pin representation
Disable the reporting of an input pin.
Set an input pin to report values.
Mode of operation for the pin. Can be one of the pin modes: INPUT, OUTPUT, ANALOG, PWM. or SERVO (or UNAVAILABLE).
Returns the output value of the pin. This value is updated by the boards
Board.iterate()method. Value is always in the range from 0.0 to 1.0.
Output a voltage from the pin
Parameters: value – Uses value as a boolean if the pin is in output mode, or expects a float from 0 to 1 if the pin is in PWM mode. If the pin is in SERVO the value should be in degrees.
