Cost Over Creativity...

Well folks... Friday I broke and stopped the H-Bridge construction. I realized that the things I had to drive the motors were inadequate, and thought it thought and realized the cost of new parts for the H-Bridge (to build it myself) would be more expensive than just buying an H-bridge driver...

So I am getting some low power H-bridge driver IC's from Digi-Key, they are the DRIVER-SN754410 from Texas Instruments... Nice driver with dual motor capacity, 1AMP current peak (works for me, I only need 320 milliamps for the motors I am driving), 4.5v to 36v... So this IC should cover my motor driving needs for this project and many-a-more to come....
