My request is simply, has anyone been successful in controlling two steppers simply using only a Netduino Plus 2 + Adafruit Motor Shield V2 for Arduino? I have read many (many) posts relating to the original shield and have reviewed all the code samples I can find but feel I may be missing something.. There have been comments that the shift register was too slow and so people went to alternative controllers. With the on-board PWM chip in V2 this issue should have been aleviated but I have not found any references to people successfully using the shield as a standalone solution for steppers. I particularly wanted to tap into the stackable feature as I would like to control up to six steppers.. Anyone had success here?
If not, should I switch to arduino directly or is there a "simple" alternative that would allow me to control six steppers from a single netduino without overtaxing the processor?
Many thanks in advance,
