555 dc motor controller

Recommended Posts

Why don't you look at the datasheet that shows both darlington transistors?

They are both the same except the TIP120 has a very high breakdown voltage and the more expensive (costs one penny more) TIP122 has an extremely high breakdown voltage. But the voltage in this project is only 12V so either Mosfet  darlington will be fine.


We do not know how much current your motor uses so it might overload the darlington transistor.

Where are the Mosfets that I was thinking about?
