Hi Lorenzo,

 

 

Could you provide more details on how you're testing the servo with the Edison? Details such as the following will help us to better assist you.What specifically doesn't work, do you see an error or is the servo completely unresponsive even after the code uploaded successfully?

 

 

We'll be waiting for your response.

I'm using the last image version and the last arduino IDE version. I think it could be the power of the board. When I connect the servo, the board disconnect from the computer.. very strange..

Hi Lollus,

 

 

Yes, I agree with Andre.M, posting pictures of your setup will help us identify the problem. When powering the Arduino expansion board through J1, make sure you're providing between 7V-17V DC. Also, check that the voltage toggle switch on the base shield is set to 5V.

Let us know if you're able to use the servo.
