A Feather board without ambition is a Feather board without FeatherWings! This is the Fully assembled (with headers) DC Motor + Stepper FeatherWing which will let you use 2 x bi-polar stepper motors or 4 x brushed DC motors (or 1 stepper and 2 DC motors). Using our Feather Stacking Headers or Feather Female Headers you can connect a FeatherWing on top or bottom of your Feather board and let the board take flight!
The original Adafruit Motorshield Kit is one of our most beloved kits, which is why we decided to squish it all together on a FeatherWing to make something even smaller, lighter, and more portable! Instead of using a latch and the Arduino's PWM pins, we have a fully-dedicated PWM driver chip onboard. This chip handles all the motor and speed controls over I2C.
Since the FeatherWing only uses the I2C (SDA & SCL pins), it works with any and all Feathers. You can stack it with any other FeatherWing or with itself (just make sure you have each wing with a unique I2C address) Check out our range of Feather boards here.
Motor FeatherWing Specs:
Comes as an assembled & tested FeatherWing with terminal blocks & plain header. Feather and motors are not included but we have lots of motors in the shop. You can use any DC or stepper motors that run from 4.5-13.5VDC and draw under 1.2A per coil. You'll likely also need to provide some external power supply for your motors, since its not suggested you run motors from the Feather's lipoly battery.
We have a great tutorial in the Adafruit Learning System for the bigger but similar Motor Shield with a lot of documentation and example code, so please check it out - Please note that unlike the full sized shield, there are no servo connections (they wouldn't fit!) So if you need a bunch of servos, check out our 8-channel Servo Featherwing
