Dual H-Bridge Block for Intel® Edison
SparkFun Blocks for Intel® Edison: make the most of your Intel computing platform!
The Intel® Edison board is an ultra-complete and powerful mini computing platform that allows you to work on all your IoT inventions even more effectively than on an Arduino or Raspberry Pi platform. Although extremely compact, it has a dual core processor and comprises 1 WiFi module, 1 Bluetooth module and a 70-pin connector including 40 GPIO pins with UART, I2C, PWM, etc.
To help you make the most of this new board, SparkFun has developed a set of boards that can be stacked onto your Intel® Edison like shields on an Arduino, using the 70-pin connector. These blocks allow you to enjoy all the benefits of having an ultra-compact Intel® Edison while improving various different special functions. For example, one block might be used to power your Intel® Edison board and another to provide it with additional PWM channels, or with accurate navigation information using an integrated inertial measurement unit. In short, you’ll have a whole range of very comprehensive tools for benefiting from, and even multiplying, all the features of your Intel® Edison!
SparkFun Dual H-Bridge Block for Intel® Edison: control 2 DC motors at once!
The SparkFun Dual H-Bridge Block for Intel® Edison allows you to connect your microcontroller to 2 brushed DC motors within a voltage range of 2.7 to 15 V, for a current of up to 1 A by motor. These 2 motors are powered by an external source, to be connected to the block’s VIN and GND pins.
Your SparkFun Dual H-Bridge Block is isolated from the Intel® Edison board thanks to a logic level converter.
