The board features bi-directional motor control using a TB6612 dual H-bridge, so it can control one stepper motor or two brushed DC motors with 4.5-13VDC power and about 1A current draw per motor. There’s also two open drain 2A MOSFET outputs for things like solenoids or large LEDs. There’s a socket for a HC-SR04 sonar sensor, and a socket breakout available to use with 5V i2c interface sensors. The board provides 5V regulated power to Photon or Core with a max input voltage of 12V.
There’s an accompanying C library here to help you get your PhoBot up and running and SparkCore or Photon controlling robots!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
