  • You don’t need them to run the motor. You need them so that the motor’s inductivity doesn’t kill the L298N when you turn the motor off. So I guess that if you only run the motor once and then throw your circuit away, you don’t need the diodes. Though I suspect that that’s not what you’re trying to do. :-P

No public wish lists :(
