Stability of the 5V output of DRI0042 driver

Hello everyone,


I saw in the Wiki that the DRI0042 motor driver can supply 5V output for Arduino, and my questions is the following : if the motor is at maximum power, will the driver still give 500 mA max if the arduino needs it ? Like, will it distribute the current in a smart way instead of giving everything to the motor, wich could make the arduino unstable ?


Thank you in advance,

The 5V output still delivers 500mA when the motor is operating at maximum current.
These two circuits are separate.
