 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hello All

I am building a simple motor controller using an SN754410 quad half-h bridge driver.

This driver is capable of accepting 2 voltages - for the logic and for the motors.

Now, assuming the power supply of the logic is seperate to the motor power supply, I guess I need to connect the two GND wires together.

It is my understanding that a motor can create noise on the line so I was wondering whether I should fit smoothing capacitors to between Vmot and GND and Vlogic and GND.

If so, what capacitance should these capacitors be? And why if possible.

Thanks

So they are big enough and cut out high frequencies typically use a 0.1uF and a 47uF
