Normally the impedance of a FET is high enough to not lose any signal over that resistor.

However I advise you against building that yourself as they are rather cheap if you just buy them: I am not sure if there is an easier way to do it. Another thing to beware of in datasheets is Vthresh threshhold voltage. Backyard controller design Eric’s Arcana and RiderX.

So, the bottom line is: This is not the gate voltage to turn the device on, its the gate voltage at which it switches fully off less than a few uA of current, typically. That 52 mOhms at 2. Much better to use a cheap Darlington transistor then.

Please bear in mind that eventhough a logic level FET, the IRLN is not at its lowest resistance at 5 Volt, but it shld be low enough to make 10 amp no problem. I am getting almost 7V at the gate so no issues. Good luck with your project. That is definitely enough for most applications. I am actually using it with octocoupler connected to 12V.

You need a logic fet for that such as the IRL series. As there datasjeet an LED in the irv530a to ground i presumethere is already a voltage drop, keeping the source above ground. Some people however have trouble reading a datasheet or do not know what to look for and in that case foing with TTL level FETs is a safe option. If you are using this circuit to switch any serious loads, then it is wise to solder some thick wire over the tracks coming from the MOSFET.


Advanced Power MOSFET

True is that car heated seat is not a very demanding load satasheet properly controlled. Fill in your details below or click an icon to log in: Also, from the graphs, Ids changes with Vds, is it because of the channel shortening effect? The input capacitance is best chosen as low as possible. Keep an eye on the temperature though when you start using it with 8 amps. More and more cheap Mosfets.

Indeed, more and more FETs availablefor 3. It seems mosfet get burned every time. Using the transistor to drive the gate with higher voltage solved the problem. It contains an opto-isolator and does all the gate datashedt.

Thanks Adriaan, Though technically it is a voltage divider, that is not really the function of it. Thank you for this very good explanation. At 5V volt on the gate, the IRF will pass something around 4. I have done like you said. Use a baseresistor of say Ohm. And as i understand when you put 5 volt on the gate, the output on the source i presume ird530a only 5Volt.

What i like you to do first is to detach the pic-circuit and just put 5 Volt on the entrance of yr FET circuit, via say that ohm resistor, and see if then your lamp behaves the same. I even used feedback protective diode with motor. If bought per 20 it is 26 eurocts a piece. Not an ideal choice, but a good one.


Is it possible to use two or maybe three IRF to handle more amperage? The only caveat using those AO parts, is their size: The transistor may burnt. You may want to read up here https: Sadly though it can only dissipate some 80 Watts There is the MTB60N05HD L that does 60 amps 50 Volt and Amps beware of the somewhat high input capacutance, bu thta does not need to be a huge problem in simple switching also you may consider browsing through this guide.

Using MOSFETS with TTL levels (5 Volt and 3.3 Volt)

The standard mosfet IRF series etc is designed to run from 10V. At 10 volt it is 4mohm and the fet can take 45 amp, but at 4.

Joe, good idea, but as I picture your changes, the emittor will be at 12 Volt when open, while yr Arduino will set the basis at a max of 5Volt, which would cause the transistor to close again. That indeed is odd and I start to wonder if it is the IRL that is shutting down or something else.

The two P-channel mosfet will be driven by transistors. The Vce in saturation is about 0. I will use Arduino to dim the power acording to inputs from handlebar.

This is for direct transfer so it is already mirrorred the right way.
