Mini Driver

Dagu Mini Driver


Now, wait just a gosh-darn second here... Is this a real-life Arduino board with a motor driver AND a USB connection for 16 bucks?!

Why, yes it is.

Dagu has really hit it out of the park here with everything you would need for a small or medium-sized robot. 2 amps per channel on the motor driver gives you plenty of umpf for your motors, USB on board means no FTDI board to buy. The Atmega8, while it can't store quite as big of a program as a 168 or 328, is still plenty big for just about anything you would want to do with it. Just a great board.

*This is a 5v board
**PWM outputs can not be used simultaneously with the servo library

  • Atmega8 5v @ 16Mhz with Arduino Bootloader
  • 5v Regulator 
  • Motor Driver rated at 2A/channel (4A total)
  • Can drive up to 8 servos
  • Onboard battery monitor (when >5V supply is used)
  • Footprint and mounting matches the Micro Magician
