How to Drive a Vibration Motor with Arduino and Genuino

Looking to drive a DC vibration motor using an Arduino or Genuino? In this article, you’ll find simple circuitry, suggestions on using Pulse Width Modulation (PWM), and example code to download. Microcontrollers are used with virtually every vibration motor application. Whilst some industrial applications may Continue reading

Are DC motors reversible?

Simply put, DC motors can turn in either direction (clockwise or counter-clockwise) and can be easily controlled by inverting the polarity of the applied voltage. Strictly speaking, the motors can actually create a force in either direction. We make this important distinction because some applications, such as Continue reading
