MotorPack

4 CH motor controller booster pack

 

The MotorPack Booster Pack is a 4 CH motor controller based off the DRV8830 from Texas Instruments.

 

Key Features

  • Drive up to 4 DC motors at 1A per channel (External power supply is required)
  • Easy and IO saving I2C interface (Only 3 GPIO pins required)
  • Motor Fault Detection
  • Stackable! (Hopefully)

 

Status: PCB Routing

I'm rerouting the PCB for the addition of the address select logic

Got the MotorPack to version 2. I'm currently optimizing the routing and doing silkscreen. It should be ready to be sent off to seeedstudio by Friday. An assembled board shouldn't cost more than $24.99 or so.
