L9110S logic level question.

Hi all,

For my robot I like to run my l9110s motor driver that I got from eBay and 2 dc-motors directly from a 7.2 volt battery. This should work together with an arduino nano. 

 However.. will this motor driver accept the 5v signals that come from the arduino? Or will I need a voltage level shifter?

 

Any advice welcome :-)
