Apologize that I have to use the wired topic.  Otherwise the submit window will go to search result and not be able to submit my question.

Why there are OUT_xxa and OUT_xxb?  Are there any relationship between them?  Have to use them in pairs?

I fixed the topic title for you. To get past the search suggestions that shows up when typing a title, just press enter.

The a/b pins are dual pins from the same output.

One way to use this is to drive larger loads by connecting two digital outputs in parallel.

Another use can be to reduce the number of wiring splices need for Digital out HS+LS where multiple low sides are powered from the same high side switch.
