This Arduino Motor Driver Shield allows you to drive and control two DC motors with ease. Simply plugs into your Mega development board, it offers mobility and compact robotic design.
The Motor Shield (2A) uses L298P chip which allows to drive two 7-12V DC motors with maximum 2A current. The speed control is achieved through conventional PWM which can be obtained from the Mega Board PWM output Pin 5 and 6. The Motor shield can be powered directly from the mega board or from external power source. It is strongly encouraged to use external power supply to power the motor shield.
Supports PWM and PLL (Phased Locked Loop) control Modes. The PWM mode uses E1 and E2 to generate PWM signal. The PLL mode uses M1 and M2 to generate phase control signal.
