    Just found this wonder. 30A and no heat-think at 31$
    looks too goo to be true.
    What are these 10 small ICs?
    any thoughts / experience?

    I saw it, but don't believe no one tested them yet since 2013....

    The only issue I can see visually is heat dissipation. Like most cheaper drivers you will need to add some yourself.
    Looks like there are heat pads that go to the underside of the PCB so thats is where you will most likely have to place the heatsink as the top of the board is quite busy.
    Apart from that the reviews seem good, though there aren' that many in total.

    Hi,

    I'm from the country where this motor driver is coming from and I am using it in my motion simulator.
    I use 2 large wiper motor (>100w i think) that burn 2 motomonsters(China) with large heatsink & cooling fan previously. But with these drivers the temperature is so low that I ended up putting them inside a fully closed box with no ventilation holes at all.(Except holes for wires & usb connection). Have been almost 2 years without any problem. Maybe I can take pictures later.

    hello, dear Superwhite!
    Do you have plans to create a 4DOF car simulator?

    I want to use Cytron mdds30 like You! I am currently working on 4DOF.
    May i ask some questions?
    thanks.
