Control scripts for the OpenFlexure Nano Motor Controller

Project description

This aims to be a super-simple motor controller, based on an Arduino Nano and a couple of Darlington pair ICs. It controls cheap 28BYJ-48 steppers, as used on the OpenFlexure microscope and stage. It owes quite a bit to [Fergus Riche’s motor board](, the hardware developed by [OpenScope]( and the Arduino-based motor controller used by a number of summer students working with Richard Bowman in Cambridge, particularly James Sharkey.

Firmware/Python code by Richard Bowman, University of Bath, PCB design & production by Sanga Valerian, STICLab.
