Alternative to L293D? Answered

Hi all.

i'm pretty new to the electronics thing, and i'm just getting started with Arduino.

i've decided to move on to motorized projects, such as IP cars and such, but i can't seem to find any decent motor controllers. as far as i can see, i need an L293D chip, but can't find one anywhere in south africa.

are there any alternatives i could try?

my appologies for being a noob. Thanks :-)


Try L293 instead of LD293.


Are you sure ? Its a very very common chip.


wow this is an extremely delayed response. sorry.

i found one at netram. but that's the only place i found it. good things aren't common in South Africa
