Servo Hardware PWM

Device Control

Allows Arduino/Genuino Mega boards to control up to 9 servos with the integrated 16-bit hardware PWM timer/counter.
This library uses the 16-bit hardware timer/counter (timer3, timer4 and timer5) to control the servos. Possible output pins are pin 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 44, 45 and 46. Unlike the original Servo.h library, this library does not use Timer1. The advantage here is that when using the Wire.h library no fluctuations in the pulse width occur. In addition, I / O registers are addressed directly and not via the digitalWrite()-function (as in Servo.h).
