Motor Driver L298 Module question



this is just a very small question about the Motor Driver L298 Module.
On the catalog site, there is on the bottom a image of a socket… and that one includes some pwm signals. (see image)

I bought me once such a module and it did burn with a 5V motor and 0.5mA… and it should last till 3A >.<

So, I have now 2 transistors… could I now define a Motor Driver L298 Module on my FEZ Hydra but not connecting that modul instead I could use a breakup-module and connect the the two pwm signals to my transistors, wich drive then my motors?

Thank you for your great help so far, community.

@ evul - You can always put any manner of hardware between a module and the mainboard using one of our breakouts. But there is no guarantee the driver we provide will still function. You can also modify the driver if you need.


Uhh no… I’m a total low-level programmer^^

If I remember right, the Mainboard doesn’t notice if the Motor Driver is there now physically or not, since there is no feedback.

Then I’ll try to jusr use a breakout morule and pick the two pwm signals.

Thank you for the information.

@ evul - In the designer you won’t connect a breakout, you will still connect the motor driver. But on the physical hardware, you will connect a breakout to the mainboard and then connect the motor driver to the breakout.
