Arduino DUE + Servos

3.3v Arduino DUE controlling a 5v servo

I wanted the Ardunio to be able to control a Servo. The problem to overcome is that the servo runs at 5.0v and the DUE can only accept 3.3v on it pins. So supplying a 5.0v to the servo, the signal (yellow) cable can probably go up to 5.0v as well.

The solution was to use a Sparkfun Logic Level Converter. here
