The Grove - I2C Motor Driver (TB6612FNG) can drive two DC motors up to 12V/1.2A or drive one stepper motor up to 12V/1.2A. With the on-board MCU, it can work with Arduino easily via the Grove I2C interface.
This diver board is based on TB6612FNG, which is a driver IC for DC motor and stepper motor with output transistor in LD MOS structure with low ON-resistor. Two input signals, IN1 and IN2, can choose one of four modes such as CW, CCW, short brake, and stop mode.
We've Released the Grove Selection Guide and hope to help you find the Grove suit you best.

Great Price for mid level power.I have had a couple of these for a while. They work just as they are supposed to. Very reliable and at this price, a very good deal. I believe the I2C address are limited to only a few choices, so I used a multiplexing I2C board to be able to send commands to many boards that all use the same I2C address.
