L298 Motor Driver Board

L298 Based Motor Driver Module is a high-power motor driver perfect for driving DC Motors and Stepper Motors. It uses the popular L298 motor driver IC and has the onboard 5V regulator which it can supply to an external circuit. It can control up to 4 DC motors, or 2 DC motors with directional and speed control

This motor driver is perfect for robotics and mechatronics projects and perfect for controlling motors from microcontrollers, switches, relays, etc. Perfect for driving DC and Stepper motors for micro mouse, line-following robots, robot arms, etc.

An H-Bridge is a circuit that can drive a current in either polarity and be controlled by Pulse Width Modulation (PWM).

Pulse Width Modulation is a means of controlling the duration of an electronic pulse. In motors try to imagine the brush as a water wheel and electrons as the flowing droplets of water. The voltage would be the water flowing over the wheel at a constant rate, the more water flowing the higher the voltage. Motors are rated at certain voltages and can be damaged if the voltage is applied too heavily or if it is dropped quickly to slow the motor down. Thus PWM. Take the water wheel analogy and think of the water hitting it in pulses but at a constant flow. The longer the pulses the faster the wheel will turn, the shorter the pulses, the slower the water wheel will turn. Motors will last much longer and be more reliable if controlled through PWM.

  • Robotic Cars
  • Robotic Arms
  • Controlling motors speed and direction

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is an L298 motor driver?

  • The L298N is a dual H-Bridge motor driver which allows speed and direction control of two DC motors at the same time. The module can drive DC motors that have voltages between 5 and 35V, with a peak current up to 2A.

2. Where can you use the L298 motor driver module?

  • The L298 motor driver is used for robotics and mechatronics projects and perfect for controlling motors from microcontrollers, switches, relays, etc. Perfect for driving DC and Stepper motors for micro mouse, line-following robots, robot arms, etc.

3. How do you power an L298 motor driver?

  • The L298N motor driver module is powered through a 3-pin 3.5mm-pitch screw terminal. The L298N motor driver actually has two input power pins – VS and VSS. VS pin gives power to the internal H-Bridge of the IC to drive the motors. You can connect an input voltage anywhere between 5 to 12V to this pin.

4. How many motors can L298 control?

  • L298 Based Motor Driver Module is a high-power motor driver perfect for driving DC Motors and Stepper Motors. It uses the popular L298 motor driver IC and has the onboard 5V regulator which it can supply to an external circuit. It can control up to 4 DC motors, or 2 DC motors with directional and speed control

5. What is the difference between L293D and L298N?

  • L293 is a quadruple motor driver that uses a half-H driver while L298 is a dual full-H driver, i.e, in L293 all four input-output lines are independent while in L298, a half-H driver cannot be used independently, only a full H driver has to be used.
