Introduction: Simplest PWM Motor Control Circuit Using Op Amp

Hello People!

This instructable is about how to build the simplest(probably) PWM circuit to control DC Motor speed, LED Strip Brightness, etc.

Specs:

Input Voltage : 5-30v

Current Handling : Depends on the MOSFET(Around 10A for IRFZ44)

Please comment if you tried building it!

    Clever circuit. I also like the use of the bottle cap as a control knob.

    What advantages does this circuit posses over the more popular 555 PWM designs?

    Here are two

    One advantage might be higher operating voltage and other might be that two individual controllers can be designed using a single IC

    Both are excellent reasons, thanks for the reply!
