The Six Pack is a Booster (or shield in Arduino lingo) for the TI Launchpad. Simply plug it into your TI Launchpad and you can control up to six motors depending on configuration.
The Six Pack uses the FAN8200 dual DC motor controller, so motor voltage and current is limited per the FAN8200 specification. Small 3 volt DC motors work perfect.
The six pack will control 4 motors from a serial port, "out of the box" using the MSP430G2231 that came with the TI Launchpad. If the serial port is not required, those 2 pins can be used to control a fifth motor by soldering 2 jumpers on the Six Pack board.
To control all six motors requires a MSP430G2553.
