That's also an option. I'm looking at all factors, including price, size, parts count, and so forth.

From a technical viewpoint, I'd like to know if paralleling the TB6612FNG works without issue.

Grateful for technical info.

Thx!

Thx. I need to run at least 2A, at least 100 kHz. This chip can do that, if it can run parallel.

I haven't found anything else with similar specs for a similar price. Suggestions welcomed!

Cheers

That TB9051FTG chip only goes up to 20 kHz. I need 100 khz or higher.

I don't need 2.6A. 2A is enough.

Also, if a paralleled TB6612FNG gives me what I need, buying a more expensive product isn't "splurging", it's wasting money for no benefit.

These sites say the TB6612 can be paralleled. Is that true?
Who knows? The professional motor driver engineers don't hang around on the hobby forums.

Let us know if it actually works.

Well, of course you do!

I did mention my frequency requirement above.

Not necessarily important, because this thread isn't asking for chip recommendations.

This thread is asking how to parallel the TB6612FNG. If you don't know, that's ok! Maybe someone else does.
