Easy, Reversible Motor Control for Arduino (or any Microcontroller) - More DIY How To Projects]]> http://cdn.instructables.com/FDD/DPBJ/GMFGVZYO/FDDDPBJGMFGVZYO.SQUARE2.jpg http://cdn.instructables.com/FDD/DPBJ/GMFGVZYO/FDDDPBJGMFGVZYO.SQUARE.jpg http://cdn.instructables.com/FDD/DPBJ/GMFGVZYO/FDDDPBJGMFGVZYO.SMALL.jpg nothinglabs This project uses just three main components to provide forward and reverse control for a single motor.  You can easily interface it to an Arduino or any other microcontroller. It's so simple - you can wire it up "free-form" without a circuit board in about 15 minutes. Features: All parts avai...

This microcontroller has an internal oscillator however an external 20MHz crystal oscillator is being used since it will have to accurately keep track of time for weeks and months. The microcontroller is interfaced to two buttons and one...

I called it the "Beakman's Electric Motor" page and over the years it has had hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of hits. Realizing that just bui...
