DC brushed motor control using an H-bridge circuit is a simple and effective method to implement start, stop and direction functions. In this video, Robin explains the basics of H-bridge operation and current flow depending upon the actuation of two control switches. The breadboard example includes protection diodes to protect the bridge transistors from burnout due to back EMF.
