Gadgeteer and Motors and you...

Microsoft .NET Gadgeteer is one of my favorite hardware kits, one that I've blogged about here a number of times. Yet I've never highlighted the work of Duke Nukem (no, not that one). He's uploaded a number of great Gadgeteer videos which we're highlighting today...

Gadgeteer and Motors - Part1 - DC Motors

Part 1 of a series of Gadgeteer YouTube videos I'm doing that show just how easy it is to use different kinds of motors and such with Gadgeteer. In this project we use a Motor Driver L298 Module to control a Tamiya 70097 Twin-Motor Gearbox Kit.

There is also a demo showing use PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) to control motor speed.

Other videos in this series will show how to use Stepper and Servo motors and Encoders and Pulse counters.
