Let your robotic dreams come true with the new DC+Stepper Motor HAT
from Adafruit. This Raspberry Pi add-on is perfect for any motion
project as it can drive up to 4 DC or 2 Stepper motors with full PWM
speed control.

Raspberry Pi and motors are not included.

Since the Raspberry Pi does not have a lot of PWM pins, we use a
fully-dedicated PWM driver chip onboard to both control motor
direction and speed. This chip handles all the motor and speed
controls over I2C. Only two pins (SDA font-family: 'Gotham SSm A',
'Gotham SSm B', Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14px;
line-height: 20px;">, a big improvement over L293D drivers and there
are built-in flyback diodes as well.

We even had a little space so we added a polarity protection FET on
the power pins and a bit of prototyping area. And the HAT is assembled
and tested here at Adafruit so all you have to do is solder on the
included 2x20 plain header and the terminal blocks.

Lets check out these specs again:

* 4 H-Bridges: TB6612 chipset provides 1.2A per bridge (3A peak)
with thermal shutdown protection, internal kickback protection diodes.
Can run motors on 4.5VDC to 13.5VDC.
* Up to 4 bi-directional DC motors with individual 8-bit speed
selection (so, about 0.5% resolution)
* Up to 2 stepper motors (unipolar or bipolar) with single coil,
double coil, interleaved or micro-stepping.
* Big terminal block connectors to easily hook up wires (18-26AWG)
and power
* Polarity protected 2-pin terminal block and jumper to connect
external 5-12VDC power
* Works best with Raspberry Pi model A+, B+, or Pi 2, but can be
used with a model A or B if you purchase a 2x13 extra-tall header and
solder that instead of the 2x20
* Install the easy-to-use Python library, check out the examples and
you're ready to go!

Comes with an assembled & tested HAT, terminal blocks, and 2x20 plain
header. Some soldering is required to assemble the headers on.
Stacking header not included, but we sell them in the shop so if you
want to stack HATs, please pick one up at the same time.

Raspberry Pi, motors, and battery pack are not included but we have
lots of motors in the shop and all our DC motors, and stepper motors
work great.
