# 2A Brushed motor driver

I need to power 2 brushed dc motors with 2A each and 3 to 6V, one direction(no bidirectional or break). To the enable the rpi 3.3V pwm, and standard pins(breadboard), not those micro pins. I know the l298 is an option. Are there better efficent options ? May be mosfet ? Thanks.

• The L298N may be underpowered for 2 amp continuous. If you mean 4 amps (2 amps per motor) it is certainly underpowered. If all you want to do is switch the motor on/off a MOSFET is likely to be a much better choice. This is the wrong stack exchange for this question (nothing to do with the Raspberry Pi). Perhaps try electronics stack exchange.

• Some mosfet could be a good idea. I like IC drivers overcurrent protection but those boards are expensive: 15$for a 2$ IC... I'll post an update soon. Should I parallel the outputs of 2 1A mosfet or what ? Nov 2 '18 at 2:33
