check the attachment file please, this is the circuit i just build for the L293D
i was trying it, it works fine but the IC got overheated :S so what might be a solution for this ? and what’s the reason ? is it because of the capacitors or it’s just normal ?
i am using a 12V motor of an RC car and feeding the IC with a 12V current from VCC1 connected to 12V + and the pin4 GND connected to - of the 12V
when trying it on breadboard there was no overheating
soldered pins : 1, 2, 3, 4,6,7,8
soldered just to the “PCB” : 9, 16
blank pins : 10 to 15
