Just getting started with arduino but haven't quite got that far yet.
i'm sure it's probably been asked before but I'm trying to control a stepper motor throught arduino.
Specfically, this stepper motor : http://uk.farnell.com/astrosyn/129/stepper-motor-1-8deg-12v/dp/9598642
But before I can do this, I'm trying to build a stepper motor driver circuit. I have next to no electronics experience which is why it's proving difficult.
I have a L6219 (http://www.st.com/internet/com/TECHNICAL_RESOURCES/TECHNICAL_LITERATURE/DATASHEET/CD00000092.pdf
and a breadboard. I have been reading vague tutorials all night but can't get my head around it. Does anyone know any basic tutorials for getting started that I could look into? Or does anyone have any useful circuit diagrams or anything?
Any help appreciated.
