    Hi all,

    I am planning to make an H-bridge for a DC motor. Here are the specs

    Supply voltage range - 12V to 30V
    Max current ≈5A

    I am planning to use IRF530 and IRF530 and IRF9530 mosfets

    The gate driver I have planned to use is this.

    Is this and the two mosfets are good choices? Do you have any suggestions?

    Thank you !!!!!!!!!

    Please post your circuit.

    The IRF530 is ok. Why do you want to use the p-FET also?

    The driver seems overkill to me in terms of current. Other than that I don't think it's suitable because it's two independent ground referenced drivers.

    With 30V supply to the FET bridge how will you turn off the p-FET?
