DRV8812: External Clamping diode is required for DRV8812 to drive DC Motor?

Part Number: DRV8812
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: L293D


To drive DC motor with 24V and nominal current is 600mA (1.2 A peak), we have selected DRV8812 as alternate part for L293D (from ST).

As L293D internal clamping diode, which is not available in DRV8812.

Are we suppose to use external clamping diode along with DRV8812 to drive DC motor?

If any please suggest diode.
