Hi,
I need to drive a 12V motor that will have a heavy load which means it will suck an awful lot of current- The TC4424 is a low current mosfet h-bridge. Is there another package or alternative chip that would do the job?
Thanks

tc4424 application

The typical application of theTC4424 is not driving motors but driving MOSFETs .. see its data sheet at: **broken link removed**

Basically, you have two options:
- build H-bridge with discrete transistors such as MOSFETs and drive them of the TC4424 ICs, or
- utalize an off-the-shelf motor driver IC, for example the L298 ( http://www.st.com/stonline/books/pdf/docs/1773.pdf ) ..

Regrads,
IanP
