The Adafruit motor shield V2 kit is one of the most popular product from the brand. This second revision of the motorshield is one of the best product on the market to drive 4 DC motors or or 2 stepper motors for your robotic project.
The embed TB6612 MOSFET will provide 1.2 A per motor with a peak at 3 A. As compared to the previous release, you will get more torque out of your batteries.
The board has its own PWM driver chip that handles all the motor and speed controls over I2C. Only two pins (SDA & SCL) are required to drive the multiple motors since it's I2C you can also connect any other I2C devices or shields to the same pins. This also makes it drop-in compatible with any Arduino, such as the Uno, Due, Leonardo or Mega R3.
The Adafruit motor shield v2 is completely stackable so that you can control motor motor that you will probably need in your project.
- 2 connections for 5V 'hobby' servos connected to the Arduino's high-resolution dedicated timer
