Adafruit MotorShield Kit for Arduino
The MotorShield is a great kit for a full-featured motor board that can power many simple to medium complexity projects for your Arduino. Power up and control your servos, bi-directional DC motors, and stepper motors in all kinds of combinations. The kit comes with all parts necessary, unassembled. Motors and Arduino are not included.
MotorShield introduction and build instructions Features: 2 connections for 5V 'hobby' servos with high-resolution dedicated timer 4 H-Bridges: L293D chipset provides 0.6A per bridge (1.2A peak) with thermal shutdown protection, internal kickback protection diodes. Can run motors on 4.5VDC to 36VDC. Up to 4 bi-directional DC motors with individual 8-bit speed selection (about 0.5% resolution) Up to 2 stepper motors (unipolar or bipolar) with single coil, double coil, or interleaved stepping. Pull-down resistors keep motors disabled during power-up Big terminal block connectors to easily hook up wires (10-22AWG) and power Arduino reset button brought up top (Diecimila only) 2-pin terminal block and jumper to connect external power, for separate logic/motor supplies Tested compatible with Diecimila (NG is next!) Resources & Downloads: Schematic and Layout files (EagleCAD) Downloadable easy-to-use Arduino software library (for Arduino IDE versions 0023 and earlier). For more information on how to use and install libraries, see the tutorial. If you are using Arduino IDE version 1.0, you will need to Note: download the newer library.
