so i am working on a project where i have to control 6 brushed DC motors ; ( 6V motors ) i started this circuit on a breadboard , and made it using 3 L293D integrated circuits . i then designed my own printed circuit and used 3 DRV8833 integrated circuits instead . everything worked just fine and i am satisfied with the results . in similar applications , everyone seems to be using dual-Hbridge ICs like the DRV8833 or the DRV8844 , where to control 6 motors they use 3 ICs . however , after doing some research i found other ICs like the "DRV8912-Q1" Here is the datasheet for that : datasheet this chip has 12 half bridge channels , and its SPI controlled ; which makes it super super convenient for my application , it also has an "automotive" rating . i am intending to order many of these and start using them instead of using 3 DRV8833 ICs . however , i am having doubts . everyone seems to be using DRV8833s , even for applications that require the control of up to 6 motors . if they didn't use things like the DRV8912-Q1 that must be for a reason right ? i just wanted to write this post to know if there's anything that i am missing , and whether or not these new chips can work for my application .
thank you .
