I wanted to operate a solenoid of 12V 2.5A rating. 

I would like to know what kind of Motor Driver IC would be suitable for it (controlling through pwm). I am confused about RMS Current and Peak Current rating of the ICs.

Also what if I select an IC who has ampere rating higher than the solenoid. will it damage the solenoid.
