L6258EP is a dual full bridge for motor control applications realized in BCD technology, with the capability of driving both windings of a bipolar stepper motor or bidirectionally control two DC motors.
L6258EP and a few external components form a complete control and drive circuit. It has high efficiency phase shift chopping that allows a very low current ripple at the lowest current control levels, and makes this device ideal for steppers as well as for DC motors.
