I just want to be sure I understand the difference between the two.
L293D has inbuilt protection diodes, while L293NE does not, am I right ? (yeah I know the latter is rated a bit higher, I am asking only about clamping diodes)
Ohh what about L293DNE ? is it like a newer version of the two ? one that has both the higher output of L293NE and inbuilt clamping diodes of L293D ??
I've read the datasheet but I am still a bit lost.
