This board is a state of the art stepper motor controller and driver for the Raspberry Pi. With its high end driving capabilities it can drive up to 4 steppers at a time. The SlushEngine is also the simplest stepper motor driver to use. With a few lines of Python code you can have a motor spinning in no time. With its easy to use features and advanced control options this board is great for Education, Hobbyists and Engineers alike!
The SlushEngine lets you do cool things like control the amount of current going to the motor or the acceleration and deceleration ramps. The board also can control and remember the position of each stepper motor. Instead of controlling the stepping and speed manually this board will do it for you.
