Hi all  :),
i've got a simple question does this motor shield handle unipolar only or bipolar only stepper motor ?
on the official page description it is mentionned unipolar; i'm about to buy a bipolar stepper motor (4 wires) because of its good characteristics for my project; will it work with that shield R3  :smiley-roll: ?
thx for your answer

Give us a link to your motor shield...
The way you have it in your schematic isn't the same as how you have it wired up!

thx LarryD for your interest, i'm just talking about arduino motor shield at -> http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoMotorShieldR3
in the section "Input and Output" they only talk about unipolar stepper, what about bipolar ?
