DFRobot Motorshield L293D vs L298P?

Jul 11, 2013 at 2:21 PM
The DFRobot Motorshield uses the HBridge library, which seems to be designed for the L293D. The DFRobot Motor Shield I purchased claims to use the L298P. Looking at the data sheet for L298P (http://www.st.com/st-web-ui/static/active/en/resource/technical/document/datasheet/CD00000240.pdf), the Pins do not seem to correspond to the Pin diagram in the HBridge source code. Is there a difference?

Hi rjhinton,

Good question. The shields themselves map the pins the same, because of the location of PWM and GPIO pins on Arduinos and Netduinos.
So I don't believe there will be a difference for the driver.
