Get your low cost motor controller boards & motor driver ICs

Free Samples

Free is nice.

Free From Salvage

Dig in, to the free stuff, a list of links and a bunch of ideas on how to use your loot.

Salvage Ideas

Unusual ideas for the fruits of your labor.

demo board

Lots of people put a microprocessor and most of the other essential stuff on a tiny little demo board, easy to plug into your solderless breadboard (or your custom PCB) that has just a few more things that make your project special.
