Is anyone using ladyada's Motor Shield?
Feel free to try this motor driver.http://sites.google.com/site/analogmc/
AMC(Analog Motor Control) library is base on ladyada's Arduino Motor Shield.http://www.ladyada.net/make/mshield/
AMC can drive both DC Motor and Stepper Motor in the same time. With the Arduino's Servo library , the motor shield can also drive two extra servo motors.
- Easy to use
- Analog drive up to four DC Motors for bi-direction control
- Analog drive two stepper motors in the same time , it does not need to wait until the other one finished stepping
- Stepper Motor Support : Bi-polar , Unipolar 4 phases , Unipolar 3 phases
Arduino Motor Shield Hardware :
The 74HC/HCT595 is an 8-stage serial shift register with a
storage register and 3-state outputs.
The L293 and L293D are quadruple high-current
half-H drivers. The L293 is designed to provide
bidirectional drive currents of up to 1 A at voltages
from 4.5 V to 36 V. The L293D is designed to
provide bidirectional drive currents of up to
600-mA at voltages from 4.5 V to 36 V. Both
devices are designed to drive inductive loads such
as relays, solenoids, dc and bipolar stepping
motors, as well as other high-current/high-voltage
loads in positive-supply applications.
