The L298 motor driver IC is a very popular, but hard to use chip. Our Compact Motor Driver Kit tames this beast, and adds useful functionality!
The L298 is a popular motor driver IC that is usable from 6 to 50V, at up to 4A total output current. By itself, the IC is somewhat diffcult to wire and use, but the Compact L298 Motor Driver makes it much more convenient to use.
Featuring dual H-bridges, our CMD kit adds:
-Four motor direction indicator LEDs
-An onboard user-accessable 5V low-dropout regulator
-Schottky EMF-protection diodes
-Screw-terminals for power and motor connections
-Socket pin connectors for easy logic interfacing
-A small 40mm (1.53") square footprint
