Is it a good idea to connect two DC motors on a single driver channel? Here are the motor specs:
Operating Range: 6 - 12VDC · No load current: 40mA (6VDC) · No load current: 70mA (12VDC) · Stall current: 360mA (6VDC) · Stall current: 1600mA (12VDC)
The driver chip is DRV8838 with the following specs:
H-bridge motor driver: can drive one DC motor Motor supply voltage: 0 V to 11 V Logic supply voltage: 1.8 V to 7 V Output current: up to 1.7 A continuous (1.8 A peak); operation at low motor and logic supply voltages reduces the maximum continuous output current
What can go wrong? Thank you!
