Dual DC Motor Driver For Robot with L298

L298-DUAL-DC-MOTOR-MODULE-M080AA-500x500

Dual Motor L298 H-Bridge Control project can control two DC motors connected to it. The circuit is designed around popular dual H-Bridge L298 from ST. This board can be configured to drive a single motor with high current rating also. This can be achieved with the help of jumpers on the board. An onboard 5V regulator can take a maximum of 18V of DC input. Should you wish to drive this board with higher voltage then 18V, you will need to connect a external 5V regulated source to the logic circuit. For this you will need to remove J-5V. This board can fit in any small toy or robot due to small size and very low profile. L298 IC is mounted under the PCB in horizontal position to make board small and low profile to fit any small robot. On board 5V regulator can be used to power up external Micro-Controller board as well as internal logic supply.

Features 

  • Motor supply: 7 to 46 VDC
  • Open J-5V Jumper if Input Motor Supply is above 18V ( Required External 5V for Logic)
  • Control Logic Input: Standard TTL logic level
  • Output DC drive to motor: up to 2 A each (Peak)
  • On Board 5V Regulator (Close J-5V to Use On Board 5V Regulator)
  • Enable and direction control pins available
  • External Diode Bridge for protection
  • Heat-sink for IC

Arduino – Processing Laser CNC Project

Neumi @ github.com has build an Arduino based CNC project and source files are provided.

This is my scratch build Laser CNC Engraver and PCB Exposer. It uses a 150mW 405nm laser diode and two CD drive motors and mechanics. A Processing sketch calculates the position of the pixels and send them to an Arduino Mega, wich drives the steppermotors. A TTL driver is used to control the Laser. With the joystick you can control the laser. You can set the exposure time, so you can engrave foam, paper, leather, plastic and wood. If you engrave photo-coated PCBs its possible to harden the surface and create your custom made PCBs.
The resolution is at about 100 pixels/cm. The work area is 3,2 x 3,2 cm.
