Dual Motor Driver for Raspberry Pi 2/3

This compact expansion board plugs directly into the GPIO header on a Raspberry Pi B+ and provides an easy and low-cost solution for driving a pair of small brushed DC motors. Its integrated DRV8835 dual motor driver operates from 2 V to 11 V, making it a great control option for low-voltage motors. The board can deliver a continuous 1.2 A (1.5 A peak) per motor, or a continuous 2.4 A (3 A peak) to a single motor when configured with both channels connected in parallel.

Compatible with

All Raspberry Pi's with 40 pin GPIO connector

Quick Spec

  • Compatible with Model B+, Model A+, Raspberry Pi 2 Model B and Raspberry Pi 3 Model B
  • Dual-H-bridge motor driver
  • Can drive two DC motors or one bipolar stepper motor
  • Motor supply voltage: 1.5 V to 11 V
  • Logic supply voltage 2 V to 7 V
  • Output current: 1.2 A continuous (1.5 A peak) per motor
  • Motor outputs can be paralleled to deliver 2.4 A continuous (3 A peak) to a single motor
  • PWM operation up to 250 kHz (ultrasonic frequencies allow for quieter motor operation)
  • Reverse-voltage protection on motor power supply
  • Under-voltage lockout and protection against over-current and over-temperature


The board uses GPIO pins 5, 6, 12, and 13 to control the motor driver, making use of the Raspberry Pi’s hardware PWM outputs, although the pin mappings can be customized if the defaults are not convenient. Note that it is designed specifically for the Model B+ version of the Raspberry Pi; it is not practical to use this expansion board with a Raspberry Pi Model A or Model B due to differences in their pinout and form factor.
