DC motor controller using IR2110

I will show you how I create a DC motor controller. It will allow me to change the speed and direction of the motor.

This drawing here shows you the basic structure of the project. The potentiometer controls the PWM generator to change the duty cycle. This signal then goes to a h-bridge made of two IR2110 mosfet drivers and four mosfets. The switch controls which combination of mosfets get the PWM signal and by doing so determines the direction of the motors rotation.
