I’m powering two 5V DC motors via the L298N with 7V. At the same time I want to power my ESP32 from the 5V terminal on the L298N. My ESP32 needs a steady 5V to work but I’m experiencing voltage drops to 4.5V-ish when I power the motors. Specifically at the beginning of the acceleration.
The ESP32 is streaming a video and I’m controlling the motors over the network.
I’ve tried to but a capacitor(100mF, 25V) between the 5V terminal and the ESP32 but I couldn’t get it to work. I tested the capacitor with the Arduino Uno-s 5V pins and it works like a charm.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to solve this issue?
