This is a dual H-Bridge motor driver IC for DC motors or Stepper Motors. It is in a 16-Pin DIP IC Package and is breadboard friendly. This IC allows your Arduino or other microcontroller to easily control 2 DC motors, 1 Stepper motor, or 4 Solenoids or Valves. This is the IC at the heart of our Arduino Motor Controller Shield.

The IC has 5VDC Logic Inputs and can control motors from 4.5VDC to 36VDC at currents up to 600mA. Peak currents of 1.2A are possible, but for short periods only. Built-in protection diodes protect the rest of your circuit from inductive kickback currents. PWM inputs allow you to control the speed of the motors.
