Q can this do micro stepping? if why not
A Hi Maranello, thank you for your question. This is a buffer chip that allows the motor to be driven. The fineness of the steps would be down to the microprocessor or controller used. This chip only provides power to the motor coils.

Q How Many Motors Can This Drive?
A Hi Anonymous, thank you for your question. This has four outputs so in effect will be able to drive four motors.
