Can ULN2003 drive two 6~9V DC motors?

Recommended Posts

I want to make a car, use the driver module, just have a piece of ULN2003 on hand, just think about whether you can use this chip to drive, check the DATASHEET, the current of each port is 500mA, I use the two ports in parallel Do a mouth control 1 motor, a total of 4 ports control 2 motors, the battery uses two 3.7 lithium batteries, do not know if this chip can work very well?

The datasheet of the ULN2003 shows that the saturation voltage loss is 1.4V. Then if the battery is 3.7v the motor gets only 2.3v but if the battery is 7.4V then the motor gets 6V.

You did not say how much voltage and current the motor needs.

You did not say what is the stalled current of the motor. Stalled is when something stops the motor from turning, which happens the moment it is powered. If the stalled current is higher than 1A (two ULN2003 outputs in parallel) then the ULN2003 will burn out.
