I want to make a microcontroller that can power up to four motors. However, I was deciding between an Uno32 vs the max32 chipkits. I'm not sure which one I should purchase. I was told that the Uno32 would need shields in order to work, but the motor shields are not compatible with it, and that I would need to hack a library or something. That is why I was thinking of switching to the max32.. because it does not require motor shields. I don't understand though.. why do I need a motor shield? Can't I just get the motors to work without the shield? Also, I need it to provide a heating component. Which one do you think would withstand my requirements? It should also be able to sense temperatures.. but agian I was told I would need another shield? I don't understand..
