Hello all. I'm looking at making a simple project that uses a motor that just spins. The module I purchased is the ULN2003 with the 28BYJ-48 motor.
Now I'm a novice so bear with me, and please correct me if I'm wrong. From what I understand, the ULN2003 module hooks up to 4 PWM pins on the Arduino. However from what I'm seeing, it looks like controlling the motor eats up the entire sketch and "pauses" the loop until it's done spinning. I don't want that. I just want the motor to "go." Arduino powers on, starts the motor, and then runs the rest of the sketch. It doesn't need any steps, I just need to be able to control the speed. And by that, I mean set up the speed in the code, not control the speed while the sketch is running. Does that make sense?
So is it possible to just make the motor "go" and still have the sketch run? Thank you in advance.
