I am using the BD65496MUV (https://www.pololu.com/product/2960) to drive a DC motor. Since the motor will remain idle for long periods of time, it would be great to put the driver into the power save mode (PS).
However, when I put the board into the PS mode, the motor begins to spin (even when my arduino output is set to low) at a slow speed, as if it’s drawing power from the VCC pin on the board. When I turn the board back on, the motor stops.
Is this normal and does it mean the board cannot enter low power mode without spinning the motor?
