4. Using as a General-Purpose Motor Driver

4.a. Assembly for Use as a General-Purpose Motor Driver
4.b. Board Connections

The set of pins along the left side of the shield provides direct access to the VNH5019 motor drivers, which means this board can be used as a general-purpose motor driver controlled by devices other than Arduinos. This section explains how to use the dual VNH5019 motor driver shield this way and provides some basic information about the motor driver pins to help get you started. However, we strongly encourage you to consult the VNH5019 datasheet (475k pdf) for detailed pin descriptions, truth tables, and electrical characteristics. This shield is essentially a breakout board for two VNH5019 motor driver ICs, so the datasheet is your best resource for answering questions not covered by this user’s guide.
