I attended a workshop organised by NEX Robotics http://www.nex-robotics.com/
and they gave us their basic programmer board of this typehttp://www.nex-robotics.com/products/mi
The problem is that when I connect a L293DNE to it and try to program it, the signal level is too low to drive the L293D. It works above 4.5 volts, but the voltage available after the regulator transistor LM7805C is about 2 Volts.
So should I put a general purpose transistor for amplification in between these two or is there some other problem.
IC is working properly otherwise, and the program is switching on ports as desired.(Checked through LEDs).
It is a part of my minor project and is urgent.
