Component for Application of Timer

Hello everyone,

I’m currently working on a project to control the speed (in RPM) of a DC motor using an Arduino, and I’d like to implement an adjustable timer to vary the motor’s running time based on user input. I am aiming to create a system where the user can set a desired operation time (start/stop and forward/reverse) through a user interface, and the Arduino will control the motor accordingly.

I would appreciate any recommendation for specific component for the timer to use in this project.

Thank you so much for your time and help!

You would most likely need a pwm motor driver part (which there are a bunch for Fritzing a google search for “fritzing part motor driver” will turn them up) connected to a PWM capable port on you MCU.
