The L293D is a popular integrated circuit (IC) used as a motor driver in electronic circuits. It is commonly employed to control the movement of motors, especially in robotics and other projects where precise motor control is required.

Here are some key features and descriptions of the L293D Motor Driver IC along with an IC base:

Motor Driver Functionality: The L293D IC is primarily designed as a dual H-bridge motor driver. This means it can control the direction and speed of two DC motors independently.

H-Bridge Configuration: The H-bridge configuration allows the motor to be driven in both forward and reverse directions by controlling the polarity of the voltage applied to the motor terminals.

Voltage and Current Ratings: The L293D can handle a wide range of voltages, typically from 4.5V to 36V, making it suitable for various motor types and power supplies. It is capable of driving motors with a peak current of up to 600mA per channel.

Built-in Diodes: The IC includes built-in diodes (also known as flyback diodes) to protect against voltage spikes that can be generated when a motor is turned off.

IC Base: The IC base is a socket that allows the easy insertion and removal of the L293D IC onto a circuit board. It facilitates testing, replacement, and maintenance of the IC without soldering and desoldering.

Pin Configuration: The L293D typically comes in a 16-pin dual-in-line (DIP) package. The pins are assigned for control inputs, motor outputs, and power supply connections.

Enable and Disable Features: The IC includes enable and disable pins for each motor channel, allowing the user to control whether the motor is active or in a standby state.

Logical Inputs: The control inputs are designed to accept logical signals (high or low) to determine the motor's direction and whether it should be active or in a freewheeling state.

Thermal Shutdown Protection: The L293D is often equipped with thermal shutdown protection, which helps prevent damage due to excessive heat by disabling the outputs until the IC cools down.


Common applications of the L293D include motor control in robots, automation systems, remote-controlled vehicles, and other electronic projects requiring precise motor control.

    Used with Arduino UNO - just perfect

    I used this H bridge to power up a small dc motor for an Arduino UNO project and it worked just fine. It's quite economic and it didn't require any extra hardware. Fully recommended.

    They all work and the price is acceptable.

    Good Quality

    I have used these in four projects to date to control dc motors using an Arduino, they function well every time.
