Arduino code L293 DC motor Driver

Using L293 and L293D DC motor driver you can control two motors with controlling direction of rotation. This code is NOT for Stepper Motor control. it is just for DC motor control.

 /*


 * This is the Arduino code L293 DC motor Driver (Advanced)
Using this code you can control a motor to rotate in both direction Clockwise(CW) 
and Counter-clockwise(CCW)

Arduino code L293 DC motor Driver (Advanced)

Using L293 and L293D DC motor driver you can control two motors with controlling direction of rotation. In this Advanced code you a separate function is used to offer controlling the motor easily and make it ready for your application with simple code. This code is NOT for Stepper Motor control. it is just for DC motor control.
