This item from pololu might be what you need. There's also the double version (for quite cheap, compared to the cost of two units) and the IC alone.
Check out my homepage for in depth tutorials on microcontrollers and electronics.

Or the Dimension Engineering drives also interface via serial.  Note that it is 5V serial, so if your SBC has an RS232 port you will have to level-shift it to 0-5V with a MAX232 or equivalent.

If that isn't good, look at the Syren model.
