Speed Control according to DT0001

Hi,

the application note DT0001 suggests controlling the motor speed by using the FWD/REV pin with a duty cycle. Though this sounds very promising especially for feed-back controller design I was wondering what happens if the motor is running in one direction and I force the motor to drive the other way. Isn't the motor than used in generator mode acting as a voltage source?

Has anyone had experience with this usage and how is the L6235 reacting to it - where is the power burned?

Thanks,
Rasmus
