Pololu Motor Driver - GPIO Breakout Pins don't work?


#1

Just wondering if anyone has ever had a problem with the breakout GPIO pins on the Pololu 3396 Motor Driver?

I’ve found all the pins have no continuity between the incoming GPIO pins and the outgoing breakout.

Admittedly it could be my soldering… but equally, seems odd that all of them show no continuity.

Did I miss something?

Haven’t personally tried one, but I wouldn’t expect to be able to run a continuity test through the various motor driver chips. Have you managed to get it up and running? Looks like it uses a separate power supply and is controlled with PWM and direction signals.
