Building a mobile robot with Arduino? Want to control high power stepper motor? Look no further! SHIELD-MDD10 is a 2-channel high power motor driver shield for Arduino. It is able to control two brushed DC motors or single bipolar/unipolar stepper motor from 7V to 30V. With discrete NMOS H-Bridge design, this motor driver is able to support 10 Amp per channel continuously without any additional heatsink.

The onboard test buttons and motor output LEDs allow functional test of the motor driver in a quick and convenient way. Buck regulator which produces 5V output is also available to power the Arduino mainboard. This eliminates the need of extra power supply for the Arduino mainboard.

This motor driver can be controlled with PWM and DIR inputs. The Arduino pins for these inputs are configurable via jumpers. If the specified pins on Arduino are already used up by other application/shield, you can select another pin easily with the jumper. 

Various protection features are also incorporated in the SHIELD-MDD10. Overcurrent protection prevents the motor driver from damage when the motor stalls or an oversized motor is hooked up. When the motor is trying to draw current more than what the motor driver can support, the motor current will be limited at the maximum threshold.

Assisted by temperature protection, the maximum current limiting threshold is determined by the board temperature. The higher the board temperature, the lower the current limiting threshold. This way, SHIELD-MDD10 is able to deliver its full potential depending on the actual condition without damaging the MOSFETs.

Note: Power input does not have reverse-voltage protection. Connecting the battery in reverse polarity will damage the motor driver instantaneously.


  • Shield for Arduino form factor.
  • Bidirectional control for two brushed DC motor.
  • Control one unipolar/bipolar stepper motor.
  • Operating Voltage: DC 7V to 30V
  • Maximum Motor Current: 10A continuous, 30A peak
  • Buck regulator to produce 5V output (500mA max).
  • Buttons for quick testing.
  • LEDs for motor output state.
  • Selectable Arduino pins for PWM/DIR inputs.
  • PWM/DIR inputs compatible with 1.8V, 3.3V and 5V logic.
  • PWM frequency up to 20kHz (Output frequency is same as input frequency).
  • Overcurrent protection with active current limiting.
  • Temperature protection.
  • Undervoltage shutdown.

Example Application: Mobile Robot, Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV), Solar Tracker, Game Simulator, Automation Machine.




Packing List:

  • 1 x 10Amps 7V-30V DC Motor Driver Shield for Arduino (2 Channels)
Hi , Can I plug this into a 25 Amp power supply? ( Santiago, 21/02/2021 )
Hi. Its not suitable as this motor driver can withstand up to 500mA. Thanks:)
How to use this driver to operate stepper motor? ( Omar, 12/11/2020 )
Hi. You can email to support@cytron.io for technical assistance. We will reply to you as soon as possible. Thanks :)
Is this product compatible with Arduino Due boards? ( Ferris, 26/07/2020 )
Hi, no they are incompatible ya. Thanks :)
Can this motor shield drive solenoids? ( Mechon, 26/07/2020 )
Not answered yet.
Can use this driver to drive auto gate 12V DC motor ? ( Js Lim, 24/06/2020 )
Hi, yes, it should not have any problem for the autogate motor. Thanks :)

When I attach this to a Maker Uno Plus which is plugged into my computer power and loading, do I have to cut the 5v output jumper or can I leave it intact?

Thank you
( Dave, 23/04/2020 )
Hi, just leave it intact and do not cut the jumper. Thanks :)
Sorry... I just realized there is one example. Forget about that.

Thx, Diego
( Diego, 26/03/2020 )
Hi, you're welcome. 

I realized that in the Github there is no example how to use this motor. Could you make available one?

( Diego, 26/03/2020 )
Hi, you may refer to the following link. Thanks :)
Is this board compatible with maker uno? ( Ubaidullah, 31/12/2019 )
Hi, yes it is compatible with Maker UNO. Thanks :)
I want to be able to monitor the current usage of each motor so I can program actions based on the amount of current each motor is using. For example, I want to be able to specify that if motor 1 draws over 5 amps than both motors will stop. Can the Arduino retrieve current feedback for each motor from this motor driver? ( Mark, 01/11/2019 )
Hi, we're sorry it cannot retrieve the current feedback. Thanks :)
