Can we use the L293D H Bridge instead of L298N H Bridge? Is the EZ-Builder compatible with L293D? Please guide me as how to connect it to EZ-B...

Looks like you should be able to use it just like a modified servo (using the modified servo Movement Panel) plus a PWM control for speed. You will need one of these for each motor.

(The L298N drives two motors).

Looks useful if you have several motors to control.

Thanks a lot for your suggestion... I'll try that and get back to you...

Please do report back. If it works, it looks like a good inexpensive solution for my 5 motor robot arm(s).

My EZ-B is not receiving power... So gotta figure it out.. I'll get back to you once I sort it out... Do you know any way to solve my problem?

Hey Alan, I connected the L293D using the same Movement Panel of L298N and it's working perfectly fine... You can try that.. It's really an inexpensive replacement. But as you know, you can control only two motors using this controller...
