dc motor, a4988

hi folks,

can i use the stepper driver a4988 for a dc motor? if yes: how is it the motor with two cables connected to the driver and how is the arduino then programmed? normally the driver gets four cables from a stepper motor.

thanks for helping!

NO.

Pololu has a great selection of modern brushed DC motor drivers.

You can drive two DC motors with a stepper driver, each in constant current/torque mode. This is not what you
want except in a very perverse set of circumstances!

Go with a DC motor driver...
