Adafruit TB6612 1.2A DC/Stepper Motor Driver Breakout Board (1D4 Adaf TB6612 stepper driver)

Fire four solenoids, spin two DC motors or step one bi-polar or uni-polar stepper with 1.2A per channel (3A peak) using the TB6612.

 We really like these dual H-bridges, so if you want to control motors without a shield or HAT these are easy to include on any solderless breadboard or perma-proto.

We solder on TB6612 onto a breakout board for you here, with a polarity protection FET on the motor voltage input and a pullup on the "standby" enable pin. Each breakout chip contains two full H-bridges (four half H-bridges). That means you can drive four solenoids, two DC motors bi-directionally, or one stepper motor. Just make sure they're good for 1.2 Amp or less of current, since that's the limit of this chip. They do handle a peak of 3A but that's just for a short amount of time. What we like most about this particular driver is that it comes with built in kick-back diodes internally so you dont have to worry about the inductive kick damaging your project or driver!

There's two digital inputs per H-bridge (one for each half of the bridge) as well as a PWM input per driver so you can control motor speed. Runs at 2.7V-5V logic. The motor voltage is separate from the logic voltage. Good for motor voltages from 4.5V up to 13.5V! This wont work well for 3V motors.

Comes as one assembled and tested breakout plus a small strip of header. You'll need to do some light soldering to attach the header onto the breakout PCB. Arduino, motors, and power supply not included. Check out the handy tutorial on assembly and wiring!

ULN2803A: 8 Channel Darlington IC - Solenoid, DC & Stepper Motor Driver (1D2 Darlington stepper driver IC)
Bring in some muscle to your output pins with 8 mighty Darlingtons! This DIP chip contains 8 drivers that can sink 500mA from a 50V supply and has kickback diodes included inside for driving coils. This will let your little microcontroller or microcomputer power solenoids, DC motors (in one direction) and unipolar stepper motors. The inputs can be driven by 3.3V or 5V logic and the IC fits nicely in any breadboard or perfboard.
 
Please note, this is an 'open collector' driver - it can only be used to connect the load to ground and there will be a 1 Volt (or more) 'drop' across the internal transistors.
 
This is a genuine Toshiba part, not a cheap replica! 
 
The ULN2803: 8 Channel Darlington IC (Solenoid/Unipolar Stepper Driver) Features:
  • The ULN2803APG / AFWG Series are high−voltage,high−current darlington drivers comprised of eight NPN darlington pairs.
  • All units feature integral clamp diodes for switching inductive loads.
  • Applications include relays, hammer, solenoid, unipolar steppers, lamp and display (LED) drivers etc.
  • Output current (single output): 500 mA (max)
  • High sustaining voltage output: 50 V (min)
  • Output clamp diodes
  • Inputs compatible with various types of logic.
  • Package Type−APG : DIP−18pin

  • PRO ONLY A heap of useful (unprotected) 3v3 goodies from the GPIO
  • A mini breadboard on top!

5V tolerant inputs - Hook up your Pi to accept input from 5V systems (like Arduino Uno/Leonardo or 5V Trinkets). We've used a 5-channel buffer that will accept anything from 2V-5V as logic high.

5V powered ouputs - The onboard darlington array can supply up to 500mA per channel (but you'll be limited to driving around 1A total from the board). Ideal for stepper motors, solenoids, and relays.

Eight capacitive inputs - Four along the front edge for touch input (labelled 1, 2, 3, 4) and four up the side for attaching crocodile clips to objects (such as fruit, or tin foil) for experimentation!

Four coloured LEDs - Independently controllable LEDs (red, green, blue, and yellow) that make great status indicators.

Four analog inputs (pro only) - A tidy way to integrate analog signals into your project.

Two H-Bridge motor drivers (pro only) - Drive two 5V motors bidirectionally with up to 200mA per channel. Ideal with our micro-metal gear-motors to create the perfect little buggy! You can even soft-PWM for full speed control.

Switched Battery Box 4xAA (6V) (switch batt box 4xAA)

This battery box is designed for use as a nice switchable, portable power pack, and fits any four alkaline or rechargeable AA batteries in series. The body is moulded in black ABS Resin and has a slide on detachable lid which can be locked for extra security through use of a small provided screw. It even includes a very useful miniature on-off slide switch which is very handy for wiring to projects that don't have a switch! Connection is via two flexible stranded red (positive) & black (negative) 26AWG wire leads, which are approximately 150mm in length.

The four batteries are held in series, for a nominal output of 6V DC (6.4V when fresh, 4V when dead), and 4.8V DC for rechargeables (5.2V when fully charged, 4.4V when discharged). Using rechargeables will make this work nicely with nearly any 5V project, with alkalines you may want to put a 1N4001 in series to drop the voltage from 6V down to 5.3V.
