which digital pins are PWM on the ethermega

For some reason, somewhere, I got the idea that all the digital pins on the ethermega are also PWM. Is this true? If not, what pins are PWM? Is there a list somewhere? The reason is that I attempted to power a pololu from the ethermega (which was already topped by an adafruit 4 motor driver shield) ...

Re: is my ethermega dead?

I wish I had the knowledge to do that, bui I'm basically a programmer and have a very shallow understanding of hardware. I will say one thing about this ethermega board, it it beautiful. It did exactly what it was billed to do. I had some trepidation about connecting the adafruit shield to it to run...

is my ethermega dead?

I mounted an adafruit motor controller (4 motors) to the ethermega and all worked fine. No conlficts. But I needed another motor driver so I added a pololu MC33926. In an effort to make the pins I needed for the pololu available, I extended some pins to the top of the adafruit. The result was the wh...

Also, since I am running the Uno for different things, if a new driver is installed, will it conflict wi...
