I went to the electronics store to buy a L298-N H bridge chip, and they told me they don't have it. I asked whether they had another similar chip that does the same thing (I expected less power or more power, different voltages, but same functionality). They recommended L292, I paid almost $10 for it, went home and found almost no record of it being used by hobbyists on their projects. It looks like a very old, specialized part that's meant to be used along with L290 and L291 on some motor positioning systems, but the manual says it "can" be controlled directly by a microprocessor too (that would be atmega328 for me) but I have no idea of how I should go about it.I just want to control simple 1A DC motor : forward, reverse and off .http://www.datasheetcatalog.com/datasheets_pdf/L/2/9/2/L292.shtmlPS - They won't accept it back, they said so from the beginning. I hope somebody will be kind enough to share some knowledge and save the chip from being smashed to pieces
