Hello! I need to buy a new motor controller for my next robot. And I am not going to wait few weeks again for the arduino/freeduino motor controller! There is a dealer in my country, that sells this motor driver!http://www.pololu.com/catalog/product/713
My question is: Is it compatible with the arduino? I know it won't fit on the board like a special shield, but I can use a breadboard!
It should be compatible, and I am thinking it is, but I just want to be sure!
P.S. Can you control a DC motor without a motor driver/controller? If you plugged both wires into 5v pins on the arduino, it should work!
That would be dumb, wouldn't it? You can't control speed, or direction?
