Typically, an electronic function used to provide amplification to drive high current loads. In common usage, the term is often employed to denote bus drivers that rapidly charge and discharge capacitance. In BEAMbots, it is almost always used to denote the ability to control power, such as when driving a solenoid, motor, or other high-current device.

See the BEAM Reference Library's BEAM Circuits Collection for a series of writeups on BEAM motor drivers.
