Hello, :lol: :lol:
I really hope this is the right place for my question.

I am fairly new to robotics and have much to learn.

I would like to interface the following motor driver:

with the FEZ Raptor Mainboard.

I am having trouble interfacing the two - the driver uses USB (mini B) communication, while the FEZ Raptor Mainboard can act as a USB Host. I may potentially need to run two 4 quadrant motor drivers. This includes:
4 drive motors - these motors can share the same signal, as I am creating a Swerve drive with all wheels powered/controlled the same.
4 steering motors -these motors can share the same signal, as I am creating a Swerve drive with all wheels powered/controlled the same.
3 linear actuators which are individually controlled.
I was planning on having the motor drivers powered externally, while communication to the driver is handled through the microcontroller which was from USB interface. Does this make sense, am I overlooking aspects which I need to keep in mind?
Thank you very much for your help!
Regards,
Chuoiujk
