L298 Overview

This motor driver IC is popular for stepper motor or dual DC brushed motor control projects. The interface is the same as that of the L293 and the TI SN754410, so this IC can also be used with our dual serial motor controller PIC to make a higher-power dual serial motor controller. We have this chip in the L298N version, which is staggered-lead, through-hole package that can be used with breadboards and other prototyping boards.

L298N Features and Specifications

  • Operation to 46 V
  • Up to 2 A per channel
  • Outputs can be paralleled to drive up to 3 A
  • Independent ground connections for each channel allow independent current sensing
  • Multiwatt15 through-hole package allows convenient heat sink mounting and easy prototyping with 0.1" breadboards

Note: This chip requires additional circuitry to work and it is shipped without documentation. You can find the L298 datasheet under the resources tab.
