Quick question. I have the Pololu VNH5019 (ash02a) and an Arduino Leonardo. I’m looking to program it, but would prefer to do so without actually attaching the motors. I planned on using solely the LED indicators on the board for testing and seeing how it responds to the code.
Here’s my question: Is there a way to power it just to be able to get the LED lights to work through power from the Arduino? If not, can I simply hook up a 9V battery (square kind) to the large VIN and GND blue terminal connections and have it function? As there will be no motors, I’m guessing powering the shield using a low current power source such as this would be fine, but also wanted to make sure.
Should you require more information, please ask and I’ll try my best to help you help me. Thanks everyone!
