Arduino + Stepper Motor(28BYJ-48) + Motor Driver(ULN2003AN)

In this instructable we are going to make this stepper motor work using Arduino.

Step 1: Connect SM to MD

Connect the stepper motor to the motor drivers.

Step 2: Create Some Jumper-to-DuPont Wires.

Solder them together, make sure they are not too short.

Step 3: Connect Ground (left) & Power (right).

Orient them so they fit snuggly.

Step 4: Connect Them to Arduino

5V & Ground.

Step 5: Make Some More Jumper-to-DuPont Wires!

Or just use a female to male dupont wire? But I didn't had any.

Step 6: Connect Them to the Motor Driver, in No Specific Order.

Step 7: Connect Them to Arduino.

IN1 - IN4 on the drivers should be connected to Arduino pins 9 to 12 in order.

IN1 - 9

IN2 - 10

etc.

Step 8: Flash the Arduino (Explained in Comments)

    Cool! What do you plan to drive with this motor?
