tip

The platforms mentioned above as supported is/are an indication of the module's software or theoritical compatibility. We only provide software library or code examples for Arduino platform in most cases. It is not possible to provide software library / demo code for all possible MCU platforms. Hence, users have to write their own software library.

note

1 Please plug the USB cable gently, otherwise you may damage the port. Please use the USB cable with 4 wires inside, the 2 wires cable can't transfer data. If you are not sure about the wire you have, you can click here to buy

2 To make the Gear-Stepper-Motor-Driver-Pack work with your Arduino, several Female-Male jumpers is also required. In case you do not have jumpers, you can click here to buy.

  • Step 1. Connect the Gear Stepper Motor Driver Board to your seeedunio via jumppers.

tip

You can connect the VM pin to VCC_5V or you can just do not use it as long as you choose the VCC in the switch.

  • Step 2. Plug the stepper motor into the Gear Stepper Motor Driver Board.

  • Step 3. Connect Seeeduino to PC via a USB cable.
