Hong Kong, i'll stick with RS Components.
All everyone has is the board with holes, and nothing else.
I guess i'll keep distances between IC Power supply and the motor to a minimum, and ... yeah. Solder ground wires between pins of VSS.
I'm planning to run 1.9A bilge motors, with a stall current of 2.5A through a IC such as a L6206 or L6205. Trying to find one with an internal charge pump to minimize external gadgetry.
Or something like that.
Or even a LMD18200. Bit expensive, but it can run two motors at the same time, and 5 would be enough for all my needs, and it has an internal charge pump. And a smallish heat sink, I guess.
Any idea if this type of connection
will fit into perfboard?
