Anyone got one of these? Could you use this board to convert from a servo motor output...IE phidget Servo controller to a stepper motor output? Or maybe to use an RC reciever? I would love a wireing diagram on how to do that.

The EasyDriver has a step input and a direction input. The motor will turn 1/8 step for each pulse you send to the controller, and the logic state of the direction input determines the direction in which the motor will turn.

So to answer your question: no, you won't be able to control it directly from a servo controller. You'll need something that will output a variable frequency square wave, like a microcontroller or a 555 timer.
