This DFRobot micro dual-way DC motor driver is designed based on the TB6612FNG motor driver IC.

It inherits DFRobot L298N motor control logic, which only needs four pins to drive two motors. Compared with the IC Breakout, it saves two precious GPIO resources!

The TB612FNG is a dual-channel full-bridge motor driver chip. The maximum continuous drive current of a single channel can reach 1.2A, with a peak value of 2A/3.2A (continuous pulse / single pulse), which can drive a range of micro DC motors.

The control logic is similar to the popular L299N, the code can be directly compatible with the DFRobot L298N motor driver. Standard XH2.54 pins can be inserted directly into the breadboard (two are included!).
