I have two stepper motors that i am controlling the timing of via a pulse train. (1 pulse = 1 step) I need to send a different pulse train to each motor... each of a different period. The problem that i am having, is that it doesnt appear to be possible with the basic x-24 stamp? This needs to be a background operation, as the chip is also handling user interaction to change the spee...

Hi, I'm having a weird problem trying to get the bx-24 to control motors. I'm using a bx24 along with the SN754410 H-Bridge. The weird thing is that I can control the enabler pin just fine. So I can turn the motor on/off with the bx-24 but i can't seem to reverse the motor. I think my problem is that sending the signal putpin to 0 is not the samething as gro

I have a dilemma: I need a fast compass in a complex motorized device but the motor magnets (which move within the project as the project moves over Earth) disturb the compass in a complex manner that would, I expect, be very difficult to correct. I plan on mounting the compass on an arm that would remove it from the motors. The CMPS03 uses I2C; the V2Xe uses SPI. It appears that I2C ...
