Arduino L293D DC motors control

A long time ago, i wrote a little tutorial on how to use a L298 Dual H-bridge motor driver, but i thought i could go further and this time I tried with a L293D chip.

The L293D Chip is a Dual H-Bridge Motor Driver for DC or Step motors. It can handle two Motors or one step motor. It can power motors until 36V and 600mA of steady current  – Max of 1.2A.

The chip is easy to use and takes little space

In this tutorial will see how to use it to power 1 or 2 DC Motors
