The Arduino L293D motor driver shield tutorial is a robobtics project in which several types of motors are driven. DC, servo, and stepper motors are the most popular kinds utilised in robotic applications.
These motors, however, are often incapable of being operated directly by Arduino or another microcontroller. Motor shields or driver ICs are employed instead because to their greater current and power ratings. These shields or integrated circuits separate the power supply of a motor and employ control logic from the microcontroller circuitry.
The L293D is one of the most popular motor driver shields for Arduino. The L293D motor driver shield is capable of controlling up to four bidirectional DC motors with 8-bit speed selection, two stepper motors, and two servo motors.
- Two L293D on board offering bidirectional control for 4 brush motors.
- L293D offers up to 0.6A continuous current drive output, 1.2A peak.
- L293D support 4.5V to 36V.
- 2 external terminal power interfaces, for separate logic/motor supplies.
- 2 interface for 5V Servo connected to the Arduino’s high-resolution dedicated timer – no jitter.
- Can drive 4 DC motors 2 stepper motors or 2 Servo.
- Up to 4 bi-directional DC motors with individual 8-bit speed selection.
- Pull low resistors to ensure the motor is disabled during power-up.
- Arduino reset button
- Compatible with Arduino UNO, Mega.
