hi

i have to control a stepper motor using atmega32 board

problem is the stepper motor.

i have used stepper motors before. but this is different. i have only used a 4-wire motor with L298.

but this one has got 6 wires. how does one work with such motors ? is L298 compatible with such motors. could someone show me some example circuit and code

additional info if required
it is 12V
i got it at throwaway price from juna-bazaar pune
it was originally used to control the blinds in an AC

It is unipolar motors

You can use the motor as same as 4 wire motors(bipolar)
leaving the centre taps
