I am a beginner in Arduino.I want to connect 2 motors to Arduino. Do I require a motor shield?And if yes please tell why? Also can i use an amplifier to increase the voltage for the motors?
And one last important question, I have just seen the motor shield's pic. Does it restrict arduino's pin usage? I mean we can't use the arduino pins if we use the motor shield right?
PS: I am talking about this model: SLAEX039 L293D Motor Shield
Thank a lot
