In this tutorial you will learn how to use the Adafruit Flora board and how you can easily program it with Codebender!

FLORA is Adafruit’s fully-featured wearable electronics platform. It’s a round, sewable, Arduino-compatible microcontroller designed to empower amazing wearables projects. The FLORA family also has the best stainless steel threads, sensors, GPS modules and chainable LED NeoPixels, all are wearable!

Introduction

In this tutorial you will learn how to use the Adafruit Trinket board and how you can easily program it with Codebender!

This tiny board is using the ATtiny85 microcontroller and it has 8K of flash memory, 5 I/O pins (including analog inputs and PWM outputs) and a USB connection (mini-USB). It can powered up by usb cable or external battery.

Introduction

This dual bidirectional motor driver is based on the very popular L298 Dual H-Bridge Motor Driver IC. This module will allow you to easily and independently control two motors of up to 2A each in both directions.

It is ideal for robotic applications and well suited for connection to a microcontroller requiring just a couple of control lines per motor.

Introduction

The L293D is a 16-pin Motor Driver IC which can control a set of two DC motors simultaneously in any direction. The L293D is designed to provide bidirectional drive currents of up to 600 mA (per channel) at voltages from 4.5 V to 36 V (at pin 8!). You can use it to control small dc motors – toy motors. Sometimes it can be extremely hot.
