    I have a motor controller board which uses an IC L293D. This IC can handle a current upto 600mA. In my project i am using the motor controller board to drive two motors, each of which have a impedance of 5 ohms and I am driving each of the motor with 15 V supply. This makes my motor controller board components go too hot. On searching the web I found an alternate IC SN754410. it can handle up to 1 A of current. But it still not suitable for my project. could you suggest me some other options so to make my circuits not fry.
