The VNH5019 is a hearty motor driver I’ve been using, but currently out of stock at Digi-Key and mouser.
Here is the chip:
I have one on another board that I reflowed in a reflow oven last year but never used because the board has other design flaws. If I bake the board in my oven at about 150 degrees for 24 hours, then remove it with my hot air gun, I shouldn’t really hurt the integrity of the chip, should I? I don’t want it to fizzle out on me in a couple years.
