    this is VERY vague question, just like
    "which medication can be used to heal? provide detailed treatment if possible."

    and answer is - it depends...

    motor can be many things so you need to say more about it (stepper, DC, AC single phase, AC three phase, voltage, power etc).

    Yep it would help to know what kind it's a big world out there with all kinds of motors.

    You could use just a NPN or a H-bridge or a AC 3 phase controller and on and on

    If you are using DC Motors runs on 1A-4A your best bet is the L298n Motor driver IC. It has embedded H-bridge circuit. For lower Amps you can use L293 Motor diver IC.

    The circuit diagram for Motor driver with L298n Motor driver can be found here

    If you are using AC motor, you can use a motor starter. Companies such as ABB, Mitsubishi, and Schneider Electric sell Motor starters and controllers. You can then feed your pwm signal to these controllers or you can use communication bus such as CAN
