  • As you can see, my polymorph accident has made me an ideal mascot for any future blob-ular shaped products

  • I am using this motor driver and I noticed that my motor is noticeably slower than when it is hooked directly up to the battery.
    I have a 12v 1.2Ah battery. I have it fed into an 7850 5v voltage regulator. I used the voltage provided from the regulator to put a full duty cycle to the PWMA pin, and feed the input pins.
    I have another wire from my 12v battery going into the VM pin on the board. The motor stops, moves both ways, etcs, just slower than if I put it directly on the battery. A much more significant drop in speed than I think it should be.
    Any ideas why?

No public wish lists :(
