    Hello...the MBC, Motor Bridge Cape, must be powered separately from the BBB/BBG.


    Seth


    P.S. If you want to supply voltage to your BBG/BBB, add a small power pack and use a 12v for the MBC.

    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. 


    Enjoy,


    Seth


    P.S. Look here: http://wiki.seeed.cc/Motor_Bridge_Cape_v1.0/. Oh and see this info. on BBGW (similar to the BBBW): http://wiki.seeed.cc/BeagleBone_Green_Wireless/.

    Hello. I'm a beginner in the BB world. I would like to stack the Grove Base cape over Motor Bridge cape in a BBGW. Please let me know what I have to do and what I do not have to do in order to have both working and avoid burning the components. Thanks in advance.

    Hello...Some pins on the BBB/BBG would be dedicated to specific pins on your Grove Base Cape and the Motor Bridge Cape. You would have to read up on what pins are available and what pins are used. Once you have an idea on what pins are being used for those Capes, this is if those Capes can be stacked without interference of pin usage, you can then deploy software to suit your needs.
