stepper motor l297 + atmel

I have studied about the logic of controlling unipolar stepper motors.
Can anybody tell me how to control them using ATMEL microcontrollers?
Plz help me in writing the code for the same.

l296 stepper

There is a chip L296/L297.This is used for driving stepper motors.Just download the datasheets and it will give a very easy way to interface your avr micro to a stepper motor.

You can use four bipolar transistor and one look up table and one delay routine.
L297/L298 is expensive solution comared to four trasistors and few lines code.

you will need to use a chip called L298 which is a bridge called H-bridge
it is expensive it is about 25L.E , and only works with bidirectional stepper motors

I HAVE A BASIC DOUBT.
Aren't L297/L298 ICs only meant to control bipolar stepper motors???????
Mine is a unipolar one.

you can use an ULN2003 or ULN2803... nice for unipolar step-motors...

Regarding L297 &298

I think they can handle both unipolar and bipolar

Please check out the datasheets
