Lab: Using a Transistor to Control High Current Loads with an Arduino
This lab helped us manage higher power supplies to control motors with a transistor. I’ve done something like this before but I’ve never seen code written straight to a transistor before. I really like this approach!
Lab: DC Motor Control Using an H-Bridge
This lab was a lot of fun. It was great to get reacquainted with the H-Bridge chip again. I remember it being more confusing so I like the way this lab laid out all the information.
Lab: Controlling a Stepper Motor With an H-Bridge
Sadly my stepper motor is broken. It died in a shampoo related mishap in my backpack 😦 I threw it away two weeks ago after a couple fruitless hours of trying to clean it. I promise that I have worked with them before and that I read through this lab. When my new one comes in the mail, I will come back to this lab and wire it up.
