L9110S_Motor_Driver_Example - Arduino sketch
Thank you Banana Robotics for the Bulk of this code.
Connections:
Arduino digital output D10 to motor driver input B-IA.
Arduino digital output D11 to motor driver input B-IB.
Motor driver VCC to operating voltage 5V.
Motor driver GND to common ground.
Motor driver MOTOR B screw terminals to a small motor.
