Motor driver for: Micro Metal Gearmotor


#1

What motor driver do I need in order to use: Micro Metal Gearmotor?

I’d like to use it with Raspberry Pi, Arduino and BeagleBone, I’m not really a fan of hats that are made only for a single dev platform.

You can drive them quite happily with 5V. The current requirements vary depending on the gear ratio, but they’re all listed on the product page, linked below.

Also, it’s worth noting that you can use pretty much all of our HATs and pHATs on Arduino quite happily, provided you don’t mind doing a little legwork porting the software libraries.
