This carrier board for ST’s VNH2SP30 motor driver IC operates from 5.5 to 16 V and can deliver a continuous 14 A (30 A peak). It works with 5 V logic levels, supports ultrasonic (up to 20 kHz) PWM, and features current sense feedback (an analog voltage proportional to the motor current). Along with built-in protection against reverse-voltage, over-voltage, under-voltage, over-temperature, and over-current, these features make this product a great general-purpose motor driver.

- In the description, it says that by using heat sinks, you can deliver more current. Where on the board are the heat sinks applied, and do you have any specific ones you can recommend?
- We do not have any particular heat sinks to recommend, and the options you have will depend on your installation (basically, the bigger, the better). You can apply heat sinks from either side of the board, but if you apply them to the bottom side of the PCB, be careful not to short out different nets.
