Please don’t support ‘knock-off’ Easy Drivers.

Over the years, the Easy Driver has become popular enough that lots of people have copied a3967sb and are making and selling it. I am flattered, truly I am.

And this is open source hardware after all. The license that the EasyDriver is released under requires at least some attribution. These knock-off manufacturers will normally strip off the “SchmalzHaus.

It appears that Electronics DIY has decided datasheey build Easy Drivers, taking off the “Schmalz Haus” part of the silk screen, and not mentioning anywhere on their page where the design came from i.

This is in violation of the license. There are lots of others too – all of the very inexpensive EasyDrivers that are now on EBay, Amazon, and Aliexpress are knock-offs. None of them support me in any way, but I end up fielding tech support for their boards because people write to me with questions.

They are fantastic and not only believe in the value of OSHW but actively support designers like me. That’s it – those are the only signals that you absolutely need to connect to anything. All the rest below are optional – in other words, the Easy Driver sets them to reasonable default values. You never really can trust the silk screen on the Dayasheet Driver.


Instead, what you need to do is put a volt meter on the TP1 test point which is connected to the VRef pin on the driver chip and measure its voltage with respect to ground. The largest voltage on that test point normally 5V will result in the largest current through the motor coils mAand the smallest daasheet on TP1 1V corresponds to the least current through the motor coils mA.

All datashet of these measurements should be over 1MOhm. And again, all measurements should be over 1MOhm. Again, all of these should read greater than 1MOhm. Do not connect anything else to the ED. The LED should come on and stay on.

It should be right around 5V. Now measure the voltage at each of the four motor output pins to GND.

Also check for any missi ng components. SparkFun has been known to ship boards with resistors or capacitors missing. If your board has any missing parts, it might not work well. If all of those measurements pass, it doesn’t mean you ED is not smoked, but it does rule out internal shorts, which is the most common failure mode for these driver chips.

To use the EasyDriver with 3. This will set the Vcc on the Easy Driver to 3. The purpose of APWR is to allow users to disconnect the built-in logic power supply of the EasyDriver and power it using their own 5V or 3.


You might want to do this for power savings reasons. This is very inefficient and will raise the temperature of the board. Instead, if you already have a 5V power supply in your project say a switching power supply that’s powering your microcontrolleryou can use that 5V power supply to power the Easy Driver as well as your other components.

The way you do that is to cut that little trace in the APWR jumper, thus ‘opening’ the jumper. This will prevent any power from flowing through the built-in voltage regulator, thus preventing it from ever heating up.

You then supply 5V or a3967wlb. If you ever want to back to using the built-in power supply of the EasyDriver, you can then solder a blob of solder over the APWR jumper, thus ‘closing’ it again. It is very, very rare for people to use the APWR jumper. So unless you would like to power the logic side of the Easy Driver from your own power supply, you can leave it as it is from the factory.
