The L298N Motor board is the same H-Bridge on the Arduino Motor Shield. Here are the key differences:

  • It is in a much smaller form factor

  • It isn’t a shield so you have to jumper wires to connect it to your CS

  • It doesn’t have current sense, so you are going to have to use one of the solutions below

  • It stands vertically on the board with a big heat sink for better controlling
