Gadgeteer - Motor Driver L298 Module

Replacement: None. We are no longer carrying this motor driver in our catalog. This page is for reference only.

Give your next .NET Gadgeteer project some ‘get up and go’! The Motor Driver Module is based on the popular L298 dual full-bridge driver. What does that mean? It means that, using this module, your gadget could control the speed and direction of two DC motors up to 40V 3A! The module will draw its operating power from the Gadgeteer mainboard, but there is a separate voltage input for the motors so you can hook up a battery or other external motor supply.

Microsoft .NET Gadgeteer is an open-source toolkit for building small electronic devices using the .NET Micro Framework and Visual Studio/Visual C# Express. This module is designed to quickly and easily integrate into any .NET Gadgeteer project.

Gadgeteer - Motor Driver L298 Module Product Help and Resources

Core Skill: Robotics

This skill concerns mechanical and robotics knowledge. You may need to know how mechanical parts interact, how motors work, or how to use motor drivers and controllers.

2 Robotics

Skill Level: Rookie - You will be required to know some basics about motors, basic motor drivers and how simple robotic motion can be accomplished.

Core Skill: Programming

If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.

3 Programming

Skill Level: Competent - The toolchain for programming is a bit more complex and will examples may not be explicitly provided for you. You will be required to have a fundamental knowledge of programming and be required to provide your own code. You may need to modify existing libraries or code to work with your specific hardware. Sensor and hardware interfaces will be SPI or I2C.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

3 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Competent - You will be required to reference a datasheet or schematic to know how to use a component. Your knowledge of a datasheet will only require basic features like power requirements, pinouts, or communications type. Also, you may need a power supply that?s greater than 12V or more than 1A worth of current.
