Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month
This is a very nice little L298 carrier board. It has (very bright) red status LEDs for the 4 inputs, as well as jumper-enable-able pull-up resistors on the inputs.
No data sheet or documents come with the board so you must do a little research to figure everything out, especially if you are not familiar with h-bridges like myself . The screw terminals are a little loose but not a big deal.
No manual. Can't see the reason for pull-up resistors on the inputs(see other thoughts). For security reasons I would put pullDOWN resistors, if any. Plastic parts of the screw terminals are somewhat loose on my board (I bought only one), but that does not caused any problem. Got the same problem with supplies over 20V as FakeName describes
At this price it can't get any better! if you are looking for a great h-bridge to control couple motors this is a sure bet
