Help for choosing a board

 Hello!

I'm an engineer apprentice in Microtechnics and I'm looking forward an electronic board for a project.
To put it in a nutshell, I would like to control at the same time two stepper motors (0.8A with 6V). However, the device would be embedded so it would be powered thanks to a battery (12V).
I have a little short of knowledge in electronics. So can you help me to choose the right board which would be both controller and driver ? 

Could this card be right : http://imall.itead.cc/im120417015.html

Thanks a lot for your answers or/and your advices !!!
Have a nice day

I see no reason why it wouldn't work isabelle

Thank! Excuse me but I'm a novice about electronics. So I prefer asking before ;)!
Do you have any advice for me?
Thank at any rate

 

I would use a pololu stepper driver shield

for swappable replacements and fine adjustments on each driver

besides that its all code thats the hard part


Ok ! Thank! I don't know what it is but I will search in this way too ;)
The step "Code" doesn't afraid of me. It's more how find the right parts!
So thank a lot for your help

 

there's lots of available versions and designs out there

this is a more expensive design
