Ok, so here's the background:
I am a student of Reykjavík University, Iceland and am working on a project. The project is to make an AUV (autonomous underwater vehicle). There are 4 students in the project, none of whom have any experience with electronics at all. We have bought a Parallax - Propeller Servo Controller USB to use with five Devantech MD22 Motor Drivers to controll the thrusters on the AUV.
We didn't really know what we were buying (we are really running low on time so we just went ahead and bought them) and now some people are telling us that the Propeller will not send out a PWM signal that can be used to control the thrusters, at least not with the default software on the chip straight from the box.
What we need to know is:
Is it possible for the servo controller to send out a PWM signal without changing the software on the chip. If not, then what software do we have to install on it and how :D
Please forgive, my ignorance :)
