Quadruple Half-H Driver - L293DNE

The L293DNE is a PTH quadruple, high-current, half-H driver IC. These ICs have been designed to provide bidirectional drive currents of up to 600mA at voltages from 4.5V to 36V. The L293DNE can drive inductive loads such as relays, solenoids, DC and bipolar stepping motors, as well as other high-current/high-voltage loads in positive supply applications.

We used to include these with the RaspiRobot Boards that we unfortunately retired awhile back. We have now made them available at a drastically reduced price for anyone who could possibly use one of these handy little ICs.

Note: Since this product belongs to our “Ding & Dent” category, once we are out of stock, we will not carry it again. Get them while you can!

  • Wide Supply-Voltage Range: 4.5V to 36V
  • Separate Input-Logic Supply
  • Internal ESD Protection
  • High-Noise-Immunity Inputs
  • Output Current 600mA per Channel
  • Peak Output Current 1.2A per Channel
  • Output Clamp Diodes for Inductive Transient Suppression

Quadruple Half-H Driver - L293DNE Product Help and Resources

Core Skill: Soldering

This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.

2 Soldering

Skill Level: Rookie - The number of pins increases, and you will have to determine polarity of components and some of the components might be a bit trickier or close together. You might need solder wick or flux.

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.

3 Robotics

Skill Level: Competent - You may need an understanding of servo motors and how to drive them. Additionally, you may need some fundamental understanding of motor controllers.

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.

2 Programming

Skill Level: Rookie - You will need a better fundamental understand of what code is, and how it works. You will be using beginner-level software and development tools like Arduino. You will be dealing directly with code, but numerous examples and libraries are available. Sensors or shields will communicate with serial or TTL.

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.
