Excellent Price, Excellent Quality – L298N Stepper Motor Driver Controller Board for Arduino Reviews

posted by metalslug2 on 05/12/2013 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- Good size footprint (smaller than sparkfun board, but larger than solarbotics board) - Excellent price - Onboard 5V regulator and associated jumper pin - Screw terminals for attaching motor supply and motor A/B outputs allow a variety of wire gauges to fit.
Cons:
- None really
Other:
- Wish there was reverse polarity protection for motor supply... Fried one board by accident when I wasn't paying attention. Soldered on a new l298 and was up and running again in no time though.
Bottomline:
So cheap that they can be permanently dedicated to a project. I've purchased 4 of these guys. Good stuff. Highly recommended.
