Motor Driver Board for the BBC microbit

This motor driver board for the BBC micro:bit allows two motors to be driven with forward, reverse & stop control, and allows access to the other pins.

This board provides a simple way to add motor driving capability to a BBC micro:bit. It allows two motors to be driven with full forward, reverses & stop control. It has terminal blocks to connect four input devices and a regulated 3V supply is fed into the 80 way connector to power the inserted BBC micro:bit.

There are 2 additional inputs/outputs. These can be used for connecting a range of parts and can be used in either digital or analogue modes.

The board also produces a regulated 3V supply that is fed into the 80 way connector to power the inserted BBC micro:bit, removing the need to power the BBC micro:bit directly

The board has been designed so that the BBC micro:bit can be inserted either way around (facing forward or backwards) however if you wish to use the broken out pins the LED matrix on the BBC micro:bit must be facing them.
