Compatablity of MC33926 Motor Driver Shield with Arduino Due

Hi! With the warning on the Arduino Due and voltages for Shield - Quote “The Due is compatible with all Arduino shields that work at 3.3V and are compliant with the 1.0 Arduino pinout”.

Will the Pololu Dual MC33926 Motor Driver Shield work and is there anything that I need to watch out for?

Thank you in advance for your time.


Hello, Greg.

The Dual MC33926 Motor Driver Shield is compatible with the Arduino Due. However, there is the possibility that the voltage on the current sensing pins of the shield could exceed the Due’s 3.3V limit if the current draw exceeds 6A. The driver is equipped with over-current protection that kicks in between 5A and 8A, so the risk to the Due should be low. You can find more information about using that shield with the Due in the “Note for Due users” box under the “What You Will Need” section of the motor driver user’s guide.
