The L298 motor driver controller board is a reliable and reasonably priced motor control controller. It allows you to drive two DC motors or stepper motors in terms of speed and direction. L298 IC is the brain of the controller, which can withstand high voltage and high current. L298 driver IC is often used for motor control due to its special “overcurrent protection” feature.
