Description: Motor Driver Expansion Board L293D Motor Driver Control Shield Guide
This Arduino compatible motor Driver shield is a full-featured products that it can be used to drive 4 DC motors or two 4-wire stepper and two 5V ”hobby” servo. It drive the DC motor and stepper with the L293D, and it drive the servo with Arduino”s pin9 and pin10.
L293D is a monolithic integrated, high voltage, high current, 4-channel driver.
Basically this means using this chip you can use DC motors and power supplies of up to 10 Volts, thats some pretty big motors and the chip can supply a maximum current of 600mA per channel, the L293D chip is also what’s known as a type of H-Bridge.
