That circuit is wierd. The input waveform is fed
to the "direction" pin.
See the truth table in the data sheet
to see what's going on.
The duty cycle of the input waveform is supposed
to control the speed and direction. 50% duty
cycle is stop. > 50% is forward.
It's a power hog, drawing full power when stopped.
Not suitable for battery driven applications.
