Hey Guys,

Trying to do some stepper motor control through PMOD on the board. Any recommendations on which motor to buy? I believe I would the following driver board, correct?

Depends on application

Yes, the Digilent PMOD is a great way to add the drive stage for your stepper. As for the motor choice, it really depends on you application requirements. There a variety of resolutions, torque(current), and constructions. Anaheim Automation has a wide selection. Just pick a 7.5 degree resolution bipolar stepper (4-terminal) at low current to get started at low cost.
