About motor shield's compatibility


#1

Hello i am new to xod and it looks very interesting and easy.

I was wondering if i use adafruit’s v2,3 motor shield, which i currently have, ( https://www.adafruit.com/product/1438 ) will it be compatible with the 'nkrkv/af-motor ’ library which says in the description it concerns the older v1 model.
Thank you.

Hello!

No, unfortunately, it won’t work. The V2 and beyond have absolutely new hardware design with control over I²C bus. The support is yet to be implemented by someone. If you feel the power, try it yourself.

If you need something to start with, the lcd i2c module has code for initializing i2c & may help with i2c communication as well.
