Compact Robotic Board to drive motors with the Raspberry-Pi Pico
This compact board allows you to plug your Raspberry-Pi Pico with header to drive up to 4 motor (or 2 stepper motor) as well as 8 servo-motor.
At the heart of this board we do find a 2x dual-HBridge motor driver. Each H-Bridge can driver 2 DC motor (both way) or 1 stepper motor. The dual H-Bridges chips and 8 servo-motors are controled via a 16 channel PWM driver.
The board do breakout the unused Pico pins and unused PWM driver pins (the 8 availables for the servo-motor). This makes 27 I/O still available for you project as well as power and ground connection.
Powering the motor is made either via the terminal block or servo style connector. The board fits a ON/OFF power switch (+LED) so you do know if the board is powered or not. The motor board generates a 3.3V power supply to power up the Pico (via the 3V and GND pico pins). Thank to the 3.3V regulator you do not need a separate power to power-up the Pico. As the 3.3V is also broken out, you can also use it to power your project sensors.
This product requires a Raspberry-Pi Pico to work.
