Motor Drive Breakout Board For micro:bit®

by Velleman

This motor driver breakout board integrates the TB6612FNG chip and gives your micro:bit the ability to drive two channel DC motors.

Each channel can output up to 1.2 A continuously with peak current up to 2 A. There are 4 motor control modes: Forward, reverse, brake and stop. The PWM supporting frequency is up to 100 kHz.

The micro:bit pins are broken out into 3 pin headers for easy access and the integrated voltage regulator provides 3.3V and 5V power output. This breakout board is ideal if you want to start with robot projects!
