    Hello all,
    This is my first post here so here goes. I am into DCC trains and I am looking to amplify the output of a DCC Decoder. The DCC Decoder puts out either a positive or negative signal (drives a DC motor) and the DC voltage can vary from -24V to +24V (and anywhere in between) and I would like to simply amplify the current. Is there a single IC that can handle 8A continuous (peak of 30A) or a similiar circuit for amplifying this type of signal? Thanks for all of your help.
