Just got the TB9051FTG Single Brushed DC Motor Driver Carrier #2997.
The Toshiba TB9051 data sheet states:
“Note 1: When the motor is set to the reverse from the forward, or to the forward from the reverse, be sure to perform after setting the brake between them. Otherwise the IC may be broken.”
I’m going to use the Dual MC33926 Motor Driver #1213 with the Freescale - NXP chip, and a great data sheet.
