I am building an Arduino-controlled solenoid system designed around the 4x4 Driver Shield from SparkFun based on IRs IPS6044 to drive the solenoids.

I am now spinning my own board and I realised that the driver IC on the shield is now obsolete.

To replace the IPS6044, I chose Infineon's BTS716G. It seems to be very similar to the IPS6044 and is suitable to drive 12 V 0.67 W solenoids.

Is there anything significantly different between the BTS716G and the IPS6044 that I need to consider?

Thank you,

DG
