  • Actually the datasheet says "maybe". Looking at Figure 1 it looks like 10A at 12V is just slightly out of it's safe operating area for DC. If you're using a pulse width of 100ms or shorter you should be fine, but if you're using this as a switch to just turn the motor on you might have an issue especially if your environment is warmer than 25C. If I was going to give this a try I'd make sure to exceed the datasheet's recommended heat sink and/or use active cooling on it to give myself a better chance that it won't toast itself. Just my $.02

    PS: 12V at 10A DC is 120W which is greater than it's 96W power dissipation.
