According to the L293 Datasheet, the Maximum Supply Voltage(VCC1)(supply for internal logic translation) is 36V. It is also mentioned that Max Input Voltage(V1)=7V whereas the Max High Level Input Voltage(VIH) is VCC1.
- If my supply to VCC1 is 12V. Will a 12V HIGH logic Level(i.e. Logic HIGH= 12V; Logic LOW=0V) given to the logic pins(1A,2A,3A,4A) damage the IC?
- When no motor is connected to the L293D, how much current does the IC draw alone?
- I am aware of the fact that the L293D dissipates heat through its GND pins(GND plane).Will a Heatsink placed on top of the DIP package of the L293D dissipate heat efficiently?
