Crank up your robotics with powerful Adafruit DRV8871 motor driver
breakout board.

This motor driver has a lot of great specs that make it useful for a
wide variety of mechatronics. In particular, the simple resistor-set
current limiting and auto-magic PWM support make it super easy to use
with just about any brushed DC motor.

Check out the specs for the DRV8871:

* 6.5V to 45V motor power voltage
* Up to 5.5V logic level on IN pins
* 565m Typical RDS(on) (high + low)
* 3.6A peak current
* PWM control
* Current limiting/regulation without an inline sense resistor
* Undervoltage lockout
* Overcurrent protection
* Thermal shutdown

Using it is super simple. Connect your motor to the OUT terminal
block. Power the board with 6.5-45VDC power on VMotor and provide the
H-bridge input control on IN1 and IN2. You can even PWM the inputs and
the driver chip will do the right thing.

You can set the current limiting with an external resistor Rlim. We
solder in a 30K resistor by default for a ~2A current limit, however
you can remove this resistor and/or solder a resistor over it to
change the resistance and change the limit.

Each order comes with one fully assembled and tested motor driver
breakout, two 2-pin terminal blocks and a small strip of header. Some
light soldering is required to attach the header and terminal blocks
but its a simple task that can be done with basic soldering equipment.
