Further Information

Hi. If I were wanting to control the speed of two motors independently both forwards and reverse what would be the best way to connect this board up.
Asked by: Stephen Clark
Hi Stephen, The datasheet for the board can be found here, Motor_driver_guide_v1_1.pdf this shows how to connect a motor and stepper motor up. As long as the pins for the input and output match then you be able to control each motor. In the truth table on page 1 the 'x' refers to either 'A' or 'B'. I hope this helps.

Can motor driver board also be powered with usb. Now my motor is not turning if I connect microbit and usb cable direct to microbit. So how to power, if you do not want battery pack?
Asked by: Spa
Hi there,

Yes that is correct you would not be able to power a motor through the battery cage on the micro:bit. If you provide power to the terminals of the motor driver board this will supply the motors and step down the voltage for the micro:bit as well.

With using a USB cable that would be theoretically possible you would need to strip the outer wire and put the positive and negative wires into the terminal blocks as normal.

However, I would be exceedingly careful with using a USB as the maximum these can supply a maximum of 500mA. If you draw more you could damage the PC you have this connected to. Bearing in mind that the micro:bit will automatically draw 120-200mA from the power source I would not connect anything more than a 250mA motor to the board while you have a USB as the power source.

I want to use this with the BBC Microbit but I can only find Ardinio documentation for how to control it. do you have any references for using this with the Microbit?
Asked by: Christian Markussen
Hi Christian, Unfortunately we don't have any documentation for using a micro:bit with this board. However you should be able to keep the set up similar to how it is with Arduino and drop the micro:bit in its place with an edge connector to break the pins out further. As an example you could use pins 12 & 8 for one of the input pairs and pins 16 & 0 for the second input pair.

Hi, i was wondering if this motor Drive Board would work with the BBC Micro:bit,
Asked by: Tom

Yes you can use this along with the BBC micro:bit to drive motors. You would still need to use the edge connector breakout board to allow you to use the correct pins. 5601-edge-connector-breakout-board
