The Motor Bridge Cape features bi-directional motor control using two TB6612FNG integrated dual H-bridge, so it can control two stepper motors or four brushed DC motors with 6~15V DC power and about 1A current draw per motor. The cape provides 5V regulated power to SeeedStudio BeagleBone Green or BeagleBone Black with a max input voltage of 15V. It also has six servo control interface and six expand IO. All the features are provided by the on board STM32F0 coprocessor. The coprocessor can communicate with BeagleBone by I2C or UART interface.
Can drive 4 DC Motors or 2 Stepper Motors
Can drive 6 Servos
6 expand IOs
Communicate with BBG by I2C or UART interface
Battery Input Voltage: 6~15V
H-bridge Working Voltage: 6~15V
DC/DC 5V output current: 2A max
3V3 output current: 350mA max
4 H-bridge driver,each rated current:1.2A, peak current:3.2A
6 Servo driver, working voltage: 5V, total current is not more than 1.5A
Input reverse connect protection
Over current protection: 3A one-off quick fuse
It is a demo which we connect Motor Bridge Cape with SeeedStudio BeagleBone Green to drive 1 Stepper Motor, 2 DC Motors and 6 Servos at the same time.

Hello...the MBC, Motor Bridge Cape, must be powered separately from the BBB/BBG.
P.S. If you want to supply voltage to your BBG/BBB, add a small power pack and use a 12v for the MBC.
Hi Thanks for your inputs. Is this cape compatible with the new beaglebone balck wireless ?? please find the lind attached.
Hello Mr. Ashwin,
Seth here. The BBBW is just like the rest. You can program it and it needs power. I do not have the BBBW. I have the BBGW, though and it works fine on it.
Hello, please refer to wiki of the board for the guide: http://wiki.seeed.cc/Motor_Bridge_Cape_v1.0/
