Controlling a Stepper motor with L298N board

  • #1
Hi guys,
So i just bought a L298N motor driver board and i'm planing to connect it to a stepper motor.
I'm wondering what kind of stepper motor should i use? The one that has 4 wires or 6 wires?
Btw, what's the difference with bipolar and unipolar stepper motor?

I'm planing to control it with an arduino anyway :)

Hi Berkeman, thanks for you replies.

Those articles really helps. But what im looking for is some specific example of product of the stepper motor, and would the l298n works fine with both unipolar and bipolar motors?
