The L298N is a dual full-bridge motor driver available in a 15-lead multi-watt package that is popularly used in Arduino motor shields. The multi-watt packaging is required,  since this device can supply a DC current of up to 4A and has a total power dissipation of 25W. When run to it's limits and given the amount of heat this device is required to dissipate, it is not unsurprising during operation to see it tethered to a heat sink. This all sounded so interesting that I decided to check the device out. So an overview of this devices' characteristics and functionality forms the basis of this blog post.

What a weekend to fall ill! I had the whole weekend mapped out to do this, then that, so by Sunday evening I should have assembled one of the prototypes. FAIL!

Here is the first picture of the 2 x 13 way Mixed-Signal Dilettante Board, with some parts pseudo-fitted, resting proudly next to its mothership, Altera's DEO Nano FPGA Development Board.
