Intro to the MAXREFDES89, Brushed DC Quad Motor Controller mBed Shield

Maxim Integrated give a walkthrough for their MAXREFDES89, a brushed DC motor controller Arduino-compatible shield:

maxrefdes89

What could you build with a brushed DC motor controller Arduino® shield? Our Arduino-compatible brushed DC motor driver reference design drives up to four motors, and easily interfaces to an mbed® platform. Featuring MAX14871, 4.5V to 36V full-bridge DC motor driver, MAXREFDES89 can be used with a wide range of motors, from mid-voltage down to battery powered.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
