Product description: TB6612FNG - 13.5 V / 1 A dual channel motor driver - Pololu 713

The H-bridge TB6612FNG is an efficient motor driver in a small and SSOP24 housing. Pololu company has met the expectations of users and created a module containing TB6612FNG chip and passive components needed for its proper operation. Signals are provided on traditional pins (2.54 mm pitch). The module can be plugged into contact board or connected with wires.

Pin Description
VCC supply of the logic part
VMOT motor supply
GND ground
AO1 AO2 channel A outputs
BO1 BO2 B channel outputs
PWMA PWM signal of channel A
PWMB PWM signal of channel B
STBY should be connected to VCC in order to switch the system on, low state (default) switches the system to sleep mode (low power consumption)
AIN1, AIN2 controlling the direction of the A channel
BIN1, BIN2 controlling the direction of the B channel

All logic signals are internally pulled to ground. The maximum PWM frequency is 100 kHz.

Video of the controller

Video describing operation of H-bridge - DC motor driver.

The TB6612 chip can be used as a controller for Pololu micromotors. If the motors will be exposed to stalling, it is recommended to merge the channels to achieve higher current capacity. To do this, connect the following leads together:

  • AO1 with BO1
  • A02 with BO2
  • PWMA with PWMB
  • AIN1 with BIN1
  • AIN2 with BIN2


The module contains a soldered bridge with goldpin leads, with standard 2.54mm spacing. There are also filtering capacitors on the board, which makes the proper connection with the microcontroller sufficient for proper operation. The schematic is available at this address.

We also offer other motor controllers including separate TB6612 chip.

It's ok. It works.

The system connected as recommended did not work at all. The L298N driver worked immediately without any code changes in the Arduino.

A very nice driver, but I do not recommend a difficult library to beginners, it is better to use something with two pins for control.
