The Big Easy Stepper Motor Driver + Arduino

[[Step Motor|Stepper]] (or step) motors are really cool. They are perfect for automation or any time you need a motor to turn to a specific point, at a specific speed, in a specific direction. And, unlike typical motors, steppers are able to do all of this, and hold their position when they are not moving… Continue reading The Big Easy Stepper Motor Driver + Arduino

Controlling 2 motors with the TB6612FNG + Arduino

First off: I know… we went overboard with the motor illustration. In previous articles we have discussed how to control motors with simple [[transistors]]. And… with [[PWM]] you could control the speed. But that is just one [[motor]], and you can only go one direction. Today we are going to talk about the TB6612FNG dual… Continue reading Controlling 2 motors with the TB6612FNG + Arduino
