Workhorse H-Bridge – L298N Stepper Motor Driver Controller Board for Arduino Reviews

posted by ggutshal on 11/07/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
At this price, why build your own? The board is populate with the L298N H-bridge chip affixed to an adequate heat sink. Inputs are presented on a header strip. Motor and power connections are presented on screw terminals. H-Bridge outputs are diode shunted to prevent transients and there is an on-board 5v regulator.
Cons:
Absolutely no documentation. It is easy enough to mess with a figure it out, I mean it's a L298N board, the old stand by... but It would be FAR better if documentation accompanied to part.
Other:
N/A
Bottomline:
It's hard to beat a $5.80 L298 H-Bridge module.
