Hello fellow Arduino community,
Some friends and me are trying to build a selfbalancing BB-8 like robot and are currently on the lookout for motor controller boards to drive our 4 DC Motors.
Our question now is, wheter or not we can stack two arduino motor shields on top of the arduino uno and each other?
We could not find a suitable motor controller with 4 channels.
How would you solve this problem? We would appreciate any idea
Thanks for the help in advance
Can't see why not? Or if you don't mind some soldering, make your own shield and put 4 of these on it: BD65496MUV. I just bought some for running 3 x 6V motors off a 7.5v RC battery, tested well: no heat, easy to wire: PWM for speed and digital for forward/reverse. About 1cm x 1cm so no problems fitting four on a regular sized shield
Can't see why not?
I can: they'll both be using the same pins.
But unless you're married to the idea of using a 298 based solution, the more modern modules from Pololu as SiDawg suggests are a very good idea.
