GPIO – General Purpose input/Output
A General Purpose Input/output (GPIO) is an interface available on most modern microcontrollers (MCU) to provide an ease of access to the devices internal properties. Generally there are multiple GPIO pins on a single MCU for the use of multiple interaction so simultaneous application.

I²C – Inter-Inter Circuit
I2C is a serial communication protocol, so data is transferred bit by bit along a single wire (the SDA line). Like SPI, I2C is synchronous, so the output of bits is synchronized to the sampling of bits by a clock signal (the SCL line) shared between the master and the slave.
I²C, pronounced I-squared-C, is a synchronous, multi-master, multi-slave, packet switched, single-ended, serial computer bus invented in 1982 by Philips Semiconductor. It is widely used for attaching lower-speed peripheral ICs to processors and microcontrollers in short-distance, intra-board communication.
- The default device address for I2C is 0x18
PWM – Pulse-width modulation
Pulse-width modulation, or pulse-duration modulation, is a way of describing a digital signal that was created through a modulation technique, which involves encoding a message into a pulsing signal.
Pulse Width Modulation, or PWM, is a technique for getting analog results with digital means. Digital control is used to create a square wave, a signal switched between on and off.
PWM is a way to control analog devices with a digital output
Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) is a fancy term for describing a type of digital signal. Pulse width modulation is used in a variety of applications including sophisticated control circuitry. A common way we use them is to control dimming of RGB LEDs or to control the direction of a servo motor.
There are many different ways to control the speed of DC motors but one very simple and easy way is to use Pulse Width Modulation.
