I'm new to Arduino and I'm working on a project. I need to control a 5-wire stepper motor with my Arduino board. I want to use L293D as my driver.
I use my computer's usb to power the Arduino board. My question is, can I power up the L293D using the Arduino board or do I need to use a separate power supply? How can I use the L293D to drive the motor? I want to know the exact circuit configuration to do this.
