  • I’d like to parallel the outputs on this controller to drive a moderately higher load (peak ~4A, continuous ~3A) for short periods. According to the L298 datasheet, to do this you want to pair lines 1&4 and 2&3, but the logic setup on this shield looks like it precludes simply jumping DirA to DirB. <br />
    <br />
    1) Am I missing something? <br />
    <br />
    2) If not, would there be a problem simply opposing A and B in software, and paralleling the appropriate output channels to the motor? <br />
    <br />

No public wish lists :(
