Introduction to Robotic Motors with Jeff

Tomorrow, Friday January 11, 2013, Inventory Day. That means pretty much every SparkFun employee will be busy counting all the things. Thusly, orders won’t be going out tomorrow. Our apologies for the inconvenience! Now on to today’s post…

If you’ve ever taken a class at SparkFun, there’s a pretty good chance you’ve met Jeff Branson, Educational Outreach Coordinator in SparkFun’s Department of Education(DoE). Jeff, along with the rest of the DoE, has been hard at work to further SparkFun’s educational efforts.

Part of his efforts has been creating videos on fundamental concepts of DIY electronics. Today we would like to share a two-part video series on the basic in’s and out’s of robotic motors. Keep in mind these are designed for the beginner, but you might be surprised at what you can learn! Check them out:



The H-bridge tutorial can be found here

If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments below. We would also love to hear you ideas for videos of this kind in the future – what would you like to learn more about? Thanks for watching!
