IC H Bridge SN754410NE- Quadruple H Driver


Suitable for driving 2 small D.C motors forward or backwards in school projects. Ideal for use with microcontrollers (Picaxe etc) Interchangeable with L293 (Same pinout, same operating voltage & output currents)

The SN754410NE is a quadruple high-current half-H driver IC, designed to provide bidirectional drive currents up to 1A at voltages from 4.5 to 36V. The device is designed to drive inductive loads such as relays, solenoids, DC and bipolar stepping motors, as well as other high-current/high-voltage loads in positive-supply applications. All inputs are compatible with TTL-and low-level CMOS logic. Each output (Y) is a complete totem-pole driver with a Darlington transistor sink and a pseudo-Darlington source. Drivers are enabled in pairs with drivers 1 and 2 enabled by 1,2EN and drivers 3 and 4 enabled by 3, 4EN. When an enable input is high, the associated drivers are enabled and their outputs become active and in phase with their inputs. When the enable input is low, those drivers are disabled and their outputs are off and in a high-impedance state. With the proper data inputs, each pair of drivers form a full-H (or bridge) reversible drive suitable for solenoid or motor applications.

Motor Drive & Control


Device has limited built-in ESD protection, leads should be shorted together or the device placed in conductive foam during storage or handling to prevent electrostatic damage to the MOS gates.
