Hello All,

I am sure a lot of people will have worked on this in their projects.

But I am just not sure how to approach this. I want to control the direction of rotation and the speed of rotation of a high voltage motor (about 12V) using the AtMega168 microcontroller.

Please somebody guide me through this.

Hi rmore, first have you at least looked at the Nerdkits 101 Tutorial on motors?

Start there then after you have followed the Tutorial ask your questions.

I do not mean to put you off but the Tutorial is really excellent for getting started.

You should work through all of the Tutorials to really get a great start at programming the mcu.
