SlushEngine: Raspberry Pi HAT Stepper Motor Driver
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 2 steppers at the same time. This board simply sits on top of your Raspberry Pi, no other hardware is required! This board will even power your Raspberry Pi from a battery or external Power supply (no USB cable needed!)
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. Check out the examples below to learn more!
