Now you can control motors (and even lights) with your Beaglebone Black. The Dual Motor Controller Cape Mk.7 (DMCC Mk.7) allows you to control up to two motors (DC, 5V to 28V) from your Beaglebone. The DMCC Mk.7 also has two Quadrature encoder interfaces, allowing position and/or speed control of the motors. The DMCC Mk.7 is stackable, allowing up to four (4) DMCC Mk.6 capes to be stacked on a single Beaglebone, providing control of up to 8 motors. Typical applications are robotics, home automation (raising and lowering TVs, etc.), LED light control, etc.
