The project i'm working on, the DC motors idles at around 250mA, load at around 1-2A, and stalls at ~7-8A. So right now i'm trying to decide between whether to get 4 mosfets, some drivers etc and build a H-bridge, or to get a motor driver like http://www.pololu.com/catalog/product/711
One one hand, the motor driver is easier, probably has more features, but it is probably cheaper to build a high-current h-bridge.
Any thoughts or comments? Anyone know of a cheaper motor driver than the one I linked?
