This Motor Driver uses the normal Motor driver chip - L298. In order to use Grove interface to let the MCU like Arduino or Seeeduino control the Motor Driver, the I2C Grove interface is designed. Besides, there is also an ATmega8L chip on board to enable the I2C connection. As a matter of fact, this motor driver is perfectly compatible with Arduino.
It is a dual-channel motor driver to connect with the step motor which means you can control two motors at a time. The Arduino Library of this board is available on Github. I hope you enjoy it on your motor project.
For all Grove users (especially beginners), we provide you guidance PDF documents. Please download and read through Preface - Getting Started and Introduction to Grove before your using of the product.
