Motor Driver for 4 wheels

Hi friends,

First post. I have a quick question. All I am looking for is a motor controller to control 4 wheels. I thought of putting together 2 L293D ic's, but asking your help to suggest other IC's which can reduce a couple of pins. Also the current requirement is too high in L293 IC's.

If someone has experimented with other motor drivers (commonly available) and suggest me, that would be helpful.

 

Requirement:

Control: To control 4 motors

Voltage: Should work between 5-12 Volts

Please let me know if you need additional inputs.
