So Im sitting here looking at an old AMD cpu cooler, some artic silver heat paste and a drill. Im sure I can get this thing cooled with with this combo. Time to get creative.
Logic Hi plus 2.5 would be 7.5 which gives me a bit too much current. I have a load of diodes and 3.3V regulators. Do you think it would be worth running the L298 at 3.3V instead of 5V? Then I could drop the supply voltage to 3.3+2.5 = 5.8V which would probably be fine current wise.Thanks and all the bestNicky
