This is a MAX14870 Single Brushed DC Motor Driver Carrier. The MAX14870 from Maxim Integrated is a tiny H-bridge motor driver IC that can be used for bidirectional control of one brushed DC motor at 4.5 V to 36 V. It can supply up to about 1.7 A continuously and can tolerate peak currents up to 2.5 A for a few seconds, making it a good choice for small motors that run on a wide range of voltages. The MAX14870 is a great IC, but its small surface-mount package makes it difficult for the typical student or hobbyist to use; our breakout board makes it easy to use with standard solderless breadboards and 0.1″ perf boards. The board ships are populated with SMD components, including the MAX14870 and a reverse battery protection circuit.

This MAX14870 Single Brushed DC Motor Driver Carrier which is a compact breakout board for Maxim’s MAX14870 motor driver offers a wide operating voltage range of 4.5 V to 36 V and can deliver a continuous 1.7 A (2.5 A peak) to a single brushed DC motor. It features a simple two-pin speed/direction interface and built-in protection against reverse voltage, under-voltage, over-current, and over-temperature.

Note: For more technical data kindly refer the attached datasheet.


  1. Single-channel H-bridge motor driver with shoot-through protection and internal free-wheeling diodes (can drive one DC motor)
  2. Motor supply voltage: 4.5 V to 36 V
  3. Output current: up to 1.7 A continuous (2.5 A peak)
  4. Simple two-pin DIR/PWM interface (one pin controls the direction and another controls speed)
  5. Active-low fault output indicates an over-current or over-temperature condition
  6. The surface-mount resistor can optionally be added to enable automatic current limiting
