L293D VS A4988 Stepper Motor Driver Comparison

The L293D motor driver can be use for stepper motor driver, but i wouldn’t recommend. First, it’s only draw maximum 600mA. Second, it doesn’t have current limiter. Here is L293D using AccelStepper library:

Here’s using A4988 using same AccelStepper library. The acceleration and deceleration was pretty smooth. Also it’s has holding feature.
