Hey Guys, once again wanted to share a new shield that we have designed around the MC33932 Dual H Bridge by Free scale. Each H-bridge in the 33932 is able to control inductive loads with currents up to 5.0A peak. The main traces on this shield are much wider than on the Ardumoto, which makes this shield much more forgiving to beginners. This is a great little board (all necessary hardware is included) and we have posted some Arduino Code to quickly get started with this shield!
8.0V to 28V continuous operation (transient operation from 5.0V to 40V)
3.3V and 5.0V (TTL / CMOS) logic compatible inputs
Over-current limiting (regulation) via internal constant-off-time PWM
Output short-circuit protection (short to VPWR or GND)
Temperature-dependant current-limit threshold reduction
All inputs have an internal source/sink to define the default (floating input) states
Sleep Mode with current draw < 50μA

Any questions and comments are Welcome!
