The Dual H-bridge Block gives the Edison some ability to move when paired with two DC motors. This board can drive two DC motors at voltages ranging from 2.7V-15V and currents up to 1amp. This board is isolated from the Edison using a logic level converter. To use this board external power for the motors will be required. Power for the motors is supplied on the headers labled “VIN” and “GND”.
The Intel® Edison is an ultra small computing platform that will change the way you look at embedded electronics. Each Edison is packed with a huge amount of tech goodies into a tiny package while still providing the same robust strength of your go-to single board computer. Powered by the Intel® Atom™ SoC dual-core CPU and including an integrated WiFi, Bluetooth LE, and a 70-pin connector to attach a veritable slew of shield-like “Blocks” which can be stacked on top of each other. It’s no wonder how this little guy is lowering the barrier of entry on the world of electronics!
