L293D Arduino Official Motor Drive Shield
Here is a design for a full-featured motor shield that will be able to power many simple to medium-complexity projects.
This motor driver shield can be used to drive upto 4 DC motor. (upto 600MA and 36v).
It can also be used to drive upto 2 Stepper Motors and Servo Motors.
- 2 connections for 5V ‘hobby’ servos connected to the Arduino’s high-resolution dedicated timer – no jitter!
- 4 H-Bridges: L293D chipset provides 0.6A per bridge (1.2A peak) with thermal shutdown protection, internal kickback protection diodes. Can run motors on 4.5VDC to 36VDC.
- Up to 4 bi-directional DC motors with individual 8-bit speed selection (so, about 0.5% resolution)
