Adafruit Assembled DC Motor + Stepper FeatherWing Add-on

Adafruit Assembled DC Motor + Stepper FeatherWing Add-on allows the use of two bipolar stepper motors or four brushed DC motors. This add-on board consists of a fully-dedicated onboard PWM driver chip that can handle all the motor and speed controls over the I2C interface. The DC motor + stepper FeatherWing add-on board features four full H-Bridges, 3.5mm terminal block connectors, and a polarity-protected 2-pin terminal block/jumper. A TB6612 chipset provides 1.2A per bridge with thermal shutdown protection and internal kickback protection diodes and can run motors on 4.5VDC to 13.5VDC. This add-on board is RoHS2 compliant and available in 51.2mm x 23mm x 18.8mm dimensions.
