    Mouser – DC motor driver mbed shield has ideal interface for developing with brushed DC motors (Maxim MAXREFDES89#)

    In stock now at Mouser, the Maxim MAXREFDES89 full bridge DC motor driver mbed shield provides an ideal interface for anyone developing with brushed DC motors. The design is a mbed-compatible, Arduino form factor shield for the rapid development of brushed DC motor applications.

    The shield contains four MAX14871 full-bridge DC motor drivers for driving up to four motors. A MAX17501 DC-DC converter allows the system to operate from a single 7VDC to 36VDC power supply. Four MAX4704 4:1 multiplexers permit setting the current regulation mode of the MAX14871 while two MAX5387 digital potentiometers provide the ability to set the motor current limit.

    A MAX7300 GPIO expander supports interfacing each motor driver circuit to the mbed-enabled microcontroller platform.

    Typical applications include industrial automation, printers and scanners, vending and gaming machines, and robotics.
