This DC motor driver has been designed specifically for the Raspberry Pi Pico and can PWM control up to 4 DC motors at a constant current of 1.2A (3.2A peak).
Power input between 6-12V can be applied, which conveniently powers the Raspberry Pi Pico thanks to the onboard 5V regulator. An on/off switch and power indicator LED add to this convenience, alongside a breakout section for unused GPIO pins.
Online development resources are available, which include wiring guidance and additional information.
A Raspberry Pi Pico is not included - click here if you'd like to buy one. Your Pico will need to have male headers soldered to it with the pins pointing downwards (or grab one of our Pre-soldered Picos).
