All--

The new Parallax-offered Pololu Micro Dual Serial Motor Controller (http://www.parallax.com/dl/docs/prod/motors/plolumtorcontr.pdf) looks really neat for small to medium sized machines. (I wish Pololu had designed it to handle up to 2A per motor, though.) The ability to control up to 61 motors with a single serial line is certainly attractive!

Bill - I am a super huge fan of this device! I usually go with the kit version... you can't beat it for the price and simplicity! Pololu has awsome tech support if you ever get into trouble...

They offer a variety of motor controllers... won't any of these meet your needs? http://www.pololu.com/products/pololu/#motocon (http://www.pololu.com/products/pololu/#motocon)

Ha! I bookmarked that exact page earlier today! And, yes, there are solutions there for me.

I am glad to read your feedback on their newest motor controller. I think I will buy a few from Parallax.
