Autodetects baud rates between 1200 and 500,000 bps, or can be set to any fixed baud rate in this range.
Absolute maximum; higher voltages can permanently destroy the motor driver. Recommended maximum is approximately 24 V, which leaves a safety margin for ripple voltage on the supply line. Not recommended for use with 24V batteries.
Typical results at room temperature running at 90% duty cycle.
All digital inputs are 5V tolerant.
