Can this be used on Arduino board
I’m thinking of making a 6 wheeled remote control buggy and need powerful high torque motors. I’m using an Arduino as a controller.
  • Many thanks

  • This communicates to your microcontroller over I2C so assuming your Arduino has I2C then yes, there is no reason why this wouldn't work :)

    Please note, example code provided with this product is written in Python. You'll need to either port this code over to C, or write your own for the Arduino.

IC used?
Which IC is used? Does it have a current feedback pin? I need one to check the current used by the motor in real time
  • Unfortunately the PicoBorg Reverse does not have the ability to measure the current use of either the motors or the battery. We do not currently have any motor control boards which have current monitoring capabilities.

The PicoBorg Reverse is an advanced, bi-directional (forward and reverse), dual motor control board for use with the Raspberry Pi. The PicoBorg Reverse is designed to control two BIG (or small) motors up to 5A each! Great for bigger-than-your-average-buggy projects, such as the DoodleBorg Raspberry Pi Tank!

If you want to power your Raspberry Pi from batteries at the same time check out our ThunderBorg controller instead :)

The PicoBorg Reverse Features:

  • Kit Includes:
    • PicoBorg Reverse Motor Controller PCB
    • Mounting Screws
    • Mounting Posts
    • Jumper & Raspberry Pi Connector Cables
  • Control BIG or small motors.
  • Speed Control in both Forward & Reverse
  • Mounts Directly onto the Raspberry Pi
  • Emergency Power Off Switch
  • Overheat protection, under voltage lockout, short circuit protection on outputs (to VCC and GND)
  • Multiple Boards can be used Simultaneously - up to 200 motors!
  • Controls 2 x DC or 1 x Stepper Motor (4, 5 or 6 Wire)
  • GPIO Pins for Programming, Feedback and PID Control
  • Power Input Voltage 6-25V
  • Power Output Current Max - 5A/Channel (10A Combined)
  • Can be via a PicKit2 for Optional Functionality
  • Uses I2C SCK/SDA and 3.3V/GND Pins for Communications

For Raspberry Pi Zero / Zero W you will need to solder a 6-pin header to the Pi so you can connect the two 3-pin cables for the board to work.
