Spectacle Motion Board

Stock code: DEV-13993

The Spectacle Motion Board makes it easy to add movement to your Spectacle projects. Each Motion Board can control up to five servo motors, regardless of whether they are standard or continuous rotation type. Designed to make it easy to add simple motions to your Spectacle projects, the Spectacle Motion Board integrates with the rest of the Spectacle ecosystem to make adding motion effects a breeze!

The Motion Board is equipped with two 3.5mm TRRS jacks for Spectacle control signals from a Director Board. The one labeled “In” should be plugged into a board that is closer to the Director Board than the Motion Board is, or into the Director Board itself. Make sure to pay attention to the directionality of the jacks, as they will dictate how your Spectacle modules speak with one another and with the Director Board. As with every other Spectacle module, you will need the Director Board to operate any Spectacle project.

Unlike other Spectacle modules, the Motion Board has a microUSB connector to allow it to be directly powered by an external power supply. This is due to the fact that the relatively slender cables the Spectacle data travels over are not adequate for the large amount of current drawn by larger servo motors or by multiple motors.

We have written an in-depth User’s Guide and Motion Board Hookup Guide to help direct you through each step of setting up this and any board in the Spectacle product line. You will be surprised by how easy and quick it is to make yourself into a Spectacle!


Spectacle is a product ecosystem centered around a simple idea: creative people shouldn’t have to learn new skills to use electronics in their projects. You’ve spent years developing the skills you use, and SparkFun wants to recognize that and help you expand your creations to include electronics without requiring you to spend years learning about electronics and programming.
