I’m having big problems with picon zero .
I’m trying to make a rover based on rc tank base.
super simple setup:
Picon zero fed through external Vin (jumpers set to Vin).
Raspberry zero as a brain, powered from battery bank.
And two track motors attached to motor A/B screw terminals.
First board got extremely hot moment after connecting power(chip closest to screw terminals).
But because it was used previously in different projects running multiple servos, I thought OK maybe it’s just damaged.
Bought second board picon zero, and now its even stranger:
After running motortest.py, motors or go accordingly with button presses but stop after like 2sec or rotate as they should just to go to max speed 2sec after without ever stopping or responding to commands .
What is interesting is that script and raspberry pi is fully responsive but picon not. Only method to stop those from running is to cut power of.
Any ideas or suggestions on different similar priced motor boards with on-board PWM?
