I am very new to the Arduino and microcontrollers in general. I am currently working on a project in which I am designing a GUI that will ultimately control 6 different bipolar stepper motors. We have come across an Arduino Duemilanove and I was hoping to be able to control these steppers with this device.
When looking for a driver configuration it seems as though there are systems that require only two pins on the microcontroller (direction and step signals) however I am still unsure if this will be possible with the number of pins on the Arduino.
If not is there another (hopefully affordable) method to do this?
