This compact expansion board plugs directly into the GPIO header on a Raspberry Pi and provides an easy and low-cost solution for driving a pair of small brushed DC motors. Its pair of integrated MAX14870 motor drivers allows it to operate from 4.5 V to 36 V, making it a great control option for small motors that run on a wide range of voltages. The board can deliver a continuous 1.7 A (2.5 A peak) per motor. This version ships as a partial kit; all surface-mount components are installed, but the included through-hole connectors are not soldered in.
This small shield is an easy, economical way to control two small brushed DC motors with an Arduino or Arduino-compatible board. Its two integrated MAX14870 motor drivers allows it to operate from 4.5 V to 36 V, making it a great for higher-voltage motors and applications, and the shield can 1.7 A continuous (2.5 A peak) per motor. The shield can optionally be configured to power the Arduino from the same power supply as the motor driver, and the Arduino pin mappings can be customized (by cutting traces) if the defaults are not convenient.
