Firstly the LMDT is a single H-bridge, so you would need two of them, and secondly that motor is for a current controllng chopper drive, not a fixed voltage drive.
The ONLY thing that changes is the sequence. Unlike a dc motora stepper motor requires power to maintain a motionless position.
You don’t need to control the current, because the mechanics of the motor kind of do that automatically: I made a wiki search and I haven’t found anything that exactly combines all the stuff. If you want to use the LMD H-bridges to control your steppers, you can; you just need to provide an external circuit that pmd18200 current control.
Driving stepper motors with H-bridges is like eating spaghetti with a single chopstick. An L just bundles up the comparators and flipflop that I mentioned in the previous paragraph.

Try Ebay – search for 3amp or 5amp stepper driver boards. If you buy a dedicated stepper controller like an A or TB, the chip includes all three components: Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.
A bipolar stepper motor REQUIRES two H bridges to drive it, but it also unless it is a very low-power model with high winding resistance also requires a current-control circuit. Before I bought some stepper motors I did some research. I strongly recommend that you read the L datasheet in conjunction with the L datasheet they are designed to work togetherbecause of the understanding of stepper motor control it will give you. In order to understand this, you need to understand the difference in operation of a dc motor verses a stepper.
It didn’t take long to discover that companies like Allegro know more about driving stepper motors than I will ever know so I decided to use an A chip.

I also read the help on Arduino examples with Stepp Motor library http: MarkT Brattain Member Posts: H-bridge chips are not intended for driving high current stepper motors. In 4 wire steppsr which are more common there are only two coils and the current is reversed in them and they can be driven with a H-bridge – just not nearly as effectively as using a proper stepper motor driver board.
Robin2 Brattain Member Posts: If you used an L as the H-bridge, you would typically use an L as the current chopper and step controller. I’m not expert,it clear, so your comments raise some further questions. A dc motor reverses direction by reversing polarity.

It is either moving in 1,2,3,4 order or 4,3,2,1 order. Though excellent, Geckos are pretty expensive. Robin2, I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around the idea of driving a stepper motor by reversing coil polarity.
The reason that a DC motor doesn’t require a current-feedback chopper is that it has significant back-EMF while rotating. They are really intended for driving Stelper motors. And, incidentally, most of the “proper” stepper motor driver boards can’t drive 5-wire steppers.

You need to under stand Robin’s comment about H-Bridgesdc motors and stepper motors. Are you referring half-step mode? I hope this happens because it mottor the chip is quite popular.
I installed it on the baseboard made by sparkfun on this purpose https: Perhaps because I am only looking at the electronics and not the magnetics. You can do that very manually using a couple of comparators and a or a flipflop or you could probably also make an L work for you here too.
