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
An Open Software Ecosystem
We recognize that each project has different requirements and goals. As such we have worked to provide as much flexibility to developers as possible. Our quad-core solution allows us to run numerous software solutions. From the selection of algorithms, NLP services, smart assistants, operating systems, and more, we wish to support our users. If you have suggestions on what services you would like to see us officially support let us know on our forums, or if you enjoy the work yourself, submit a merge request to our github.
