Connecting to the qik can be as simple as hooking up power, your motors, and your serial connections. Many applications can leave the jumpers off and the remaining logic connections unconnected. The qik’s serial transmit line, TX, is only necessary if you want to get feedback from the controller.
The qik logic and power connections and key components are shown above; the pins are labeled on the back side of the motor controller. All square pads are ground.
