L6234 Brushless Motor Controller Breakout

I made a breakout for the L6234 brushless motor controller chip, making prototyping and easy interfacing with it easy. Here are the designs of it. This can control a brushless motor, which is a lot more different than just controlling a simple brushed motor. They can run a lot more accurate and slower than normal motors. They can be very interesting in Gimbal or stabilisation setups, or when precision is required.
I made this breakout for Hakim Sugito, he needed something like this for his MSc project. I myself intended to use it as a camera gimbal stabilisation.
