    Hi everyone, I have a "Monster Motor Board" (MODE1), which works with 3 wires:

    1 PWM
    2 DIRECTION


    I use Arduino Uno R3 in which I want to insert the SMC3 code, but I have some difficulties because I am new in this Forum and I don't know Simtools.
    I had used X-Sim, but I happily quit because it became obsolete and Forum absent, so I chose to use SimTools, but I need some answers from you.

    QUESTIONS
    1) The latest (newest) version of the official SMC3 code that I can use in MODE1 is SMC3 v1.0?

    2) In the code "SMC3" I read 25Khz for Motor 1 and Motor 2, I read 31Khz for Motor 3. But I also read in a thread that the frequency is 490Hz and with a new code it is possible to increase it up to 20Khz (link)
    I have a lot of confusion about the operating frequency of Simtools (Khz), can you explain to me what frequency the official code really provides?

    3) Where is it possible to choose the frequency 25Khz and 31Khz? Where can I select the frequency, from SMC3Utils or Simtools?

    4) In the SMC3 v1.0 code I saw "A5 - Motion scaler pot input". I would like to know, what is the A5r pin for?
