I have an OrangePi Lite, and a DK Electronics Motor shield(https://cdn-learn.adafruit.com/d ... it-motor-shield.pdf).
I use C# .NET Core, on my Orange Pi, with Armbian operation system, and WiringPi library to handle GPIO ports. I tried several examples from the internet like this: http://blog.janlipovsky.cz/2016/ ... y-pi-part2.html?m=1
but it was not success, I can't control my DC motor. I followed the cable connections between OrangePi and Motor Shield from the previous example, the green led lights on the shield, I translated his python source code to C#, but the motor do nothing. I tried to give direct voltage for motor shield, and tried the OrangePi power too, I switched the modes with PWR jumper.
I tested the motor directly with 5 voltage, that works. I used the gpio with leds, that works too.
I will very thankful for every help(links, C# code examples, others)

Thank you!

SInce its an arduino shield, have you tried just porting the arduino code to your opi?  change the code or pin assignments to match your setup and use wiringOPi.  Got all this from: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=16118

  1. #include <stdio.h>
  2. #include <errno.h>
  3. #include <string.h>

Hi,

I tried Arduino examples too, but not this maybe. One other people suggested, that it will be far easier, when I remove the L293D chip from the shield, and put into a breadboard. I tried it, and it works fine, since that the motor runs. There was a lot of example to direct connect to L293D, and the wiring, debugging is too easier. So I will prefer this way.
Thank you for help.
