Pololu G2 High-Power Motor Driver 18v17
This discrete MOSFET H-bridge motor driver enables bidirectional control of one high-power DC brushed motor. The small 1.3″ × 0.8″ board supports a wide 6.5 V to 30 V voltage range and is efficient enough to deliver a continuous 17 A without a heat sink. Additional features of this second-generation (G2) driver include reverse-voltage protection along with basic current sensing and current limiting functionality.

- Some discrete MOSFET based H-bridges are unable to handle a continuously high PWM signal (100% duty cycle). This has to do with bootstrap capacitors not having enough time to charge. Does this bridge allow 100% duty cycle PWM input?
- Yes. The design has an extra charge pump that allows the high-side MOSFETs to stay on indefinitely for 100% duty cycle operation.
