  • The shield contains two L293D motor drivers and one 74HC595 shift register.

  • The shift register expands 3 pins of the Arduino to 8 pins to control the direction for the motor drivers.

  • The output enable of the L293D is directly connected to PWM outputs of the Arduino.

  • The Motor Shield is able to drive 2 servo motors, and has 8 half-bridge outputs for 2 stepper motors or 4 full H-bridge motor outputs or 8 half-bridge drivers, or a combination.

  • Up to 4 bi-directional DC motors with individual 8-bit speed selection (about 0.5% resolution) 

  • Up to 2 stepper motors (unipolar or bipolar) with single coil, double coil, interleaved or micro-stepping. 

  • 4 H-Bridges: L293D chipset provides 0.6A per bridge (1.2A peak) with thermal shutdown protection, 4.5V to12V 

  • Pull down resistors keep motors disabled during power-up 

  • Big terminal block connectors to easily hook up wires (10-22AWG) and power 

  • Arduino reset button brought up top

  • 2-pin terminal block to connect external power, for seperate logic/motor supplies 

  • compatible with UNO,Mega, Diecimila, & Duemilanove
