Hello, I am fairly new to Arduino and electronics, so please don't go too hard on me.
I have the 28BYJ-48 Stepper Motor and wanted to connect it to the Arduino and just test it and maybe build something using it.
I looked online for tutorials and Schematics and found very many using an Easydriver.
I didn't understand why and couldn't find any explanation. The most helpful thing I found was somebody using a L293DNE...
I don't know how the Easydriver or the L293DNE work and what function they have.
I also have another small point:
I saw all using an external battery.. and I have 2 problems with that.
- Why? What is the reason behind not using the power from the Arduino?
- I don't have a "Battery to Board connector" is there an easy solution? or is the best thing to buy one?
