Viktor blogged about his bipolar stepper motor driver based on Texas Instuments’ LMD18245 build:

After extensive research on the internet I decided to make a bipolar stepper motor driver based on Texas Instuments’ LMD18245, which is a 3A, 55V DMOS Full-Bridge Motor Driver. It incorporates all the circuit blocks required to drive and control current in a bipolar stepper motor.
